Hey I'm planning to climb in sedona this month, been there some but I'd like to get on some of the better ones. We're talking multi-pitch between 5.8 and 5.11. For those who have climbed there alot, what would you recommend?
thanks in advance,
Scott

This is mostly a bump as I've only done six or eight routes there. Probably my favorite so far has been Four Flying Apaches.

I see from your profile that you've climbed with Manny. You might want to ask him. Also, you could pm some of the people who have posted a lot of pictures of sedona.

If it's cold/windy go to the Church Wall and do Easy Rider, Poop Chute, Broken Arete, Bliss, Genesis, Last temptation, Brown Hornet (tr), and Castles in the Sand.
other great routes include regular route on Princess spire & "Fingering Xena".
on schnebly hill rd (past Arch Enemy) do Technicolor Corner, and then Wild West is a good multipitch on the teapot.
"Japhead" has several good routes including: Bootieful, Majak Line, and Crimson Crescent.
Mars Attacks off dry creek rd is a good one, Space Balls is nearby and also a good value.
Vortex in a Can is pretty sweet- on the south side of cathedral (near the mace) and Andy Kaufman crack, Rusty Cage are good 1pitch.
Many people start off with Queen Victoria or Streaker Spire.
As Always: consider climbing at a slightly lower grade when i Sedona as the rock is notoriously less than perfect. As you comfort level grows with the "Best Choss on Earth" so will you enjoyment of the harder routes. 5.6 can be really exciting in Sedona!

THE MACE! Need I say more.

My nephew and I did this route last August (dodging t-heads) and it was phenomenal!!

This route is mostly off-width climbing, four pitches and somewhat of a grunt fest. It's also the oldest milti-pitch in Sedona and (in my opinion) one of the best!
