I helped put up a fantastic clean aid line in Sedona.....It's called "All system's GO!!" and goes at 5.9 C2. I wish I could tell you the name of the formation it's on!! I can tell you it starts as for a somewhat famous climb called "epitaph" which climbs the under belly of a huge roof.

This climb has the same start but about half way up the first pitch climb out left to the obvious crack on the left hand wall. It's 3 full aid pitch's and 1 free...you rap the route with 60M ropes mandatory. There is a description and topo in the new route book at the gym in Flagstaff. Don't think it's seen a 2nd. It really is a good line.

Josh is right! That line looks sweeet! It's on the NW side of the Flying Buttress formation north of Schnebly Hill road. I could only really scope the first pitch or so but I can send a photo of the line if ya like. If you've got the Bloom guidebook, the route is around the formation from Technicolor Corner.
