Comments: A bit of a heads up, the beta herin is not entirely accurate. The NZ equivalent of MP is climbnz.org.nz/ and you'll find most routes there.

Comments: The first pitch made me puke! Serious thrutching and harder than anything on Black Arrow. Gotta hate it to love it.

Comments: Fantastic climbing on stellar rock, but a death route! There is one rusty old bolt to protect a potential 60 foot whipper. The leader may as well untie after leaving the protection of the upper seam. All due respect to the original ascensionists for their bold ground-up style. I think the route would be much more popular if it was made safer by, at the very least placing a new bolt by the old one.

Comments: Watchtower is a 5.7, (16). It has been done in two pitches on double 60 meter ropes clipping nothing but fixed gear. It's a classic feature!

Comments: Sherman is wearing a harness under his jeans and is clipped into 'Lord of the Rings' on Henry Bolte Wall. I think it's a grade 28, but it goes in flip flops (thongs).

Comments: Just did it again, for the fourth time! We were a little short on time so I ran the first and second pitch together without too much rope drag and with only one double length runner. Didn't seem to make it any more dangerous and made for one hell of a first pitch!

Comments: This area is another black hole bouldering site. It's a good place to get to know your local homeless and how they hang. "Oh don't mind me, I'm just going to hope over your Naty Light cans on my way back to my pad. Mmnn, smells good."
I found some fun slabs and great free solo's, but its true, you need a few pads and some sacrificial spotters to climb most of the good looking lines here. At first I thought this was a waste of time, but after a bit of scratching around (next to a harmless hobo's... more >>

Comments: I think if you're careful with your rope the second and third pitch could go as one, if you're in a hurry.
Only need a single rack to 4 on this climb.

Comments: Just did Skyline again. I didn't say anything and my partner skipped the 4th bolt too, traversing in after the third. We like the first three bolts so Iíll retrieve my last comment about this route not needing any bolts.
Pitches three and four can be run together in a rope stretching sprint if you use really long slings!
I have your cam Bennett. If you want it it's in Prescott, but I need a number three...
Thanks for the beta Paul, Iíve done Mooseís Butte and it is spicy, even with that bolt! T... more >>

Comments: On Pitch 2 I remember missing a few bolts. I seem to remember tending right to the crack instead of following the bolt line. It goes! No need for bolts on this one but my second had a great time on the slab. Awesome Climb and if you think its run out, good! We need a little spice.

Comments: No worries. We love a good sandbag in Sedona! Wouldn't be any fun if it was easy.

Comments: Classy route. We climbed it in the rain. Harder than 5.9 but our friend climbed it, it was her second climb ever.

Comments: Stiff for the 10+ grade through the roof, or maybe we just suck.
Not to be critical because its a great route, but the bolt on the third pitch would be much more appreciated on the first pitch traverse through the chossy limestone band! That's the only sketchy bit and it would be a lot safer with a bolt.
