*The Left Wall Rock Climbing
Josh Janes on the Terminator 5.12
The Left Wall is a stunning section of rock which sports heady starts that lead to wonderfully split cracks. It is the meat and potatoes of the Waterfall area. Many of the routes here were done by Darren Singer, Daniel Miller, and Jason Keith in the early nineties. Many of these pitches are regarded as classic. Includes all routes from Rising Sun on the left to Bladerunner on the right.
The Left Wall includes the historical sub areas Left End, Tombstone Area, Pinnacle Area, and the Sword Area, laid out in more detail in the Bloom/Wolfe Sedona Guide.
This wall gets morning sun, and afternoon shade. But, be careful because the base is overgrown and often shady...

Giardia is a superb, all natural gear line for the grade, and classic Waterfall sports action.... The crux involves some powerful moves over the roof/bulge on positive holds. Turns out multiple people have ripped their crux gear #.5. Make sure you have some gear in before the roof.This route starts above the obvious little spring at the base of the wall. Climb a slightly unpleasant off fist size crack to the roof which has a very thin crack splitting it. Plug in a couple pieces of gear, a...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
