Comments: Does a climb have to be hard to be stellar? Me thinks not. Great movement protection and rock throughout both pitches. Variety of challenges at the grade. Love.

Comments: Tao of Choy 5.7 for me was harder than sudden death 10-. Far be it from me to accuse anyone of sandbagging.

Comments: Spring of 2012 there was a rap anchor/bolted belay at top of p1... Is that gone? There was a loose death block on p1 until then, but since it fell I seriously think p1 is one of best .10 pitches I've been on in Sedona....

Comments: I don't get these pitch counts. We did 4 plus a slabby summit scramble. 2 and 3 were both 200 feet- 60 required - and w a 60 don't plan on any rope left for the anchors. This puts you at a 6 foot tall block to sling w long cordalette at top of 2, and just below the little traverse to 3 bolt anchor at top of 3. We were 2 rope teams and unanimous that the better belay for p3 was top of big corner just below traverse. Amazing light blue offset DMM nut (large) you can slot in from above and left o... more >>

Comments: Bravo Colin! Every move is fun. Great route. And just like JC says, smile-inducing...which I needed after the kick this techy crag can deliver.

Comments: i'm interested in the direct finish to double clutching... doctor says it is sometimes done at .11.... i was not aware of that. do you guys recognize it as a separate route? what does it go at? any trickiness to the pro above that 2nd roof? cause if that's another line that is just downright sweet....

Comments: Several 11's up here don't give me the problems this route does... And on tricky tiny gear at the crux. Just sayin.

Comments: Fantastic and underrated. More solid down low than much of left wall. You can enter the crux thin section protected by #3 in pod opposite the small pillar. I like green, red, then purple c3 after exiting the left splitter, plus the bomber black met/75 at the hand jam

Comments: Dj telle no tella Da truth. Big corner p1 anchors alive and well. Look down and climber's left- they're the shiny anchors for 3rd rap. Had 80. Think 70 would suck. That block above p3 belay moved inches when I stepped on it. Don't step on it and don't put a cam in there! Keep your rope from behind it by placing first piece high, and running it long.

Comments: This crag is stacked. Super fun moves on this one. Bravo JJ and Wade for your work up high in the sky. Shiny fat anchors?! You spoil us.

Comments: Double cracks, so you don't need all the 3's if you use the right crack. At the roof, right is wrong left is right. But an orange metolious w long runner on right of roof feels good

Comments: It's better than 2 stars. Bit of walk, bit of scrambling, to immaculate dihedral with ninja moves and ninja gear. I feel like giving it four stars just cause I'm sorry about this route getting neglected....

Comments: thanks for the heads up, this is a great warm-up option (honestly, for some of us, it's a main event).... don't read this if you aren't looking for gear beta: after clipping the last bolt JJ describes above, you can get a blue metolious in a horizontal out left (if for some idiotic reason like me you forgot your purple metolious), then a .75 in a bit of a flare (maybe this is where the #1 works better?) and then a bomber .4 above this. definitely bring 3-4 long runners.

Comments: Matthew- great point on the start location. It's a long way down if you fall off to the right! And to think, my belayer opposed any anchor.... Spooky indeed.

Comments: May I confirm the bit runout comment? What a satisfying lead. If you don't fall clipping 5th bolt!

50 feet? Please. That would be more than one bolt every 10 feet. That ain't this route!

Comments: Bravo to Roy for his labor of love, creating this truly special place... Big climbs. Scary climbs. Bolted gentle climbs or hair raising routes, whatever floats your boat, it is here, up high in the sky. Be sure to walk lower jungle all the way through distant drum. Marvel at king kong. Just seeing that line made my palms sweat! Thanks Roy et al.
