Comments: I freed the first pitch yesterday and it is incredible! I started with a 'sedona-step' from the boulder, and may be a bit height dependent. This summer I added one protection bolt for the crux and anchors at the top of the pitch to lower off. The grade is certainly not quite as hard as has been advertised for the last 15 years, but may need a few repeats to settle it. I am honored it got to be my ultimate fate!

Comments: A variation that worked well was linking the upper half of this with Red Ball.

Comments: looks like "Veggie Spread", 12a, according to the new Sedona guidebook.

Comments: Shortly after Gregg installed his extension, I moved one of the anchor bolts to the left to be able to clip easier from the stance and moving it out of the fall line of the extension. Is it still difficult to clip? Would a longer chain help?

Comments: they were there when we did it about a month ago. They are climbers right on the ledge at the top. I missed them too, built an anchor right underneath them, and found them as i was breaking down the anchor...

Comments: I found and cleaned a few more holds down low to keep it real. Higher up, I dabbed to the right for one hold but don't tell anyone. This and Gandy Dancer make a nice pair as a 2for1.

Comments: One long crux from ground to above bolt 3. Powerful and off balance movement with leggy compression. Roped bouldering is my kind of bouldering! Would be three stars if it were twice as long.

Comments: The arete moves are tricky and great position. The headwall crux is brief and might be a tad height dependent, but good moves on bullet rock! The first clip in the headwall is a difficult draw to hang. Another option to keep the climbing 11 and under is to bail out to Mulligan's anchors at its last bolt instead of doing the biscuits headwall.

Comments: Really, Tamas? That's not how I remember it, as I personally bolted P1 and that was the last pitch to be bolted and then climbed it. Are you thinking of another route? Was that the same weekend you hurt yourself from a boulder that dislodged on the trail?
