Dave Spies and I did this route for the first time yesterday. A proud send and a long sought-after tick on one of Sedona's most prominent features.

Rock quality is some of the lowest in Sedona on the first two pitches (and that's saying a lot considering I'm talking about Sedona). The third and fifth pitches are cleaner and a lot of fun. The fourth (crux) pitch is awkward and tough but you have solid rock and decent protection (used a BD #5 at the initial overhang) for most of the hardest moves mixed with some dirt and choss--heads up!

Beautiful summit!!!

Beware:
-The bolts atop the fourth pitch have been chopped but there are plenty of options to build an anchor.
-There is only one good rap bolt on the summit (there is a second, but it sticks out of the drill hole about 3/4" and moves)
-The belay anchors (NW face atop Spout Route) could use an additional bomber bolt.
-The last belay station is off a bush approx. 100' off the deck and fifty feet right of the start of the climb.
