Now why would you not do a lovely bit of squeeze, especially with a tree at the rim?
Where's Dean ?

Hey Paul! I definitely will return for that short second pitch. I have something for Dean across from this...

I have looked at this line before, wondering if it had been done. Would have been sweet if it went to the rim with no intermediate anchor.

The first anchor won't interfere with you going to the rim in one pitch, though its probably a few grades harder and pretty dirty in the tips crack above the nice squeeze. I left a short bolt and a fixed nut for an anchor. Bring a shovel if you want to get to the tree.

You rang....? Well turns out that the upper squeeze is hohum, nothing special and the section above that is super thin, crumbly and not really that memorable. Actually the position is pretty wild but climbing not too inspiring. That being said I sure hope somebody climbs it after the amount of time I spent with sand and rock falling on my head while Darren battled to the rim.

Original pitch is pretty awesome though!

Now you're talking, some real Sedona climbing.
What's the point of sandstone if you don't come home filthy?

Sounds like a one pitch, fixed anchor climb...
