There is now (again?) a direct start, passing a couple pins to get to the bolts. The direct version is IMO a better and more natural line. Also, this protects well and IMO does not deserve a PG rating, especially in Sedona.

I added 3 fixed pins to the start of this route last winter. It is now well protected, and should clean up nicely now that the start of the route is established. No longer a PG route.

Route Update:

We also added an additional bolt on the arete, avoiding the ramp makes it now fun 5.10 to gain the sloping ledge under the roof.

THE CRUX SIDE-CLING AT THE ROOF BROKE OFF, LEAVING A NICE EDGE, BUT A BIT EASIER. SEEMS TO BE 5.11B NOW

Fantastic route, great moves never too cruxy. Too bad that the anchor is nasty looking tat. Hope to put some chains on it next time I make it down. Really fun route. Not PG 13 with the pins.

Really fun and clean moves up the arete. It is a shame that the top is kind of chossy. I think that it felt like 11.a. But its still a great route.

New anchors are bomber. Thanks Dean!

Choss at the bottom is more than made up for in the upper climbing.
