Best 12d in Arizona. Short vertical section gets you to a ledge for a rest. Then blast off up steep rock on good holds. Great moves all the way to the anchor.
Obvious line on the left side of the cave.

I understood that Matt Childers got the first ascent, but Pastor bolted the route. True/False? What's up Seth? Where you been?

This is definitely the coolest sport line I've had the pleasure to climb on. Thanks to Ted for rope gun duty.

Great climb! This route really does have it all...mostly good rock, steep, multiple cruxes including an enduro redpoint crux, and some choss at the finish to remind you that you're in Sedona and not the Red River Gorge. I so wish there were more routes like this in Northern Arizona.

Big fun gymnastic movements to big jugs. Multiple heel hooks and core tension. More strength than technique. No crimps on this route. A must do for any strong climber

Great route super fun and awesome moves. Definitely NOT the best 12d in the state by any means. Who ever wrote that description hasn't seen all of them...that is for certain!

Just saw that Patrick is calling me out about the best 12d. I guess I should be honest and say one of the best 12d sport lines in AZ. The best 12d in my humble opinion is probably Shangri La. Do you have any other contenders?
