I've seen that route and wondered what it was for years...thanks...markguycan
nice, I like your attitude--markguycan
sweet line, is it low angle?
Phallus- should be renamed!
nice looking granite! beautiful water! Donde esta este lugar?
great composition, I like the contrasting granite and shadow, good balance of media. and yes it is a stellar route!
like the contrasts and color, strong movement.
nothing better than sunshine on high sierra granite!
a little grainey but nice composition. I love that spot!-)
ok, who wants to be my partner? lets go!
great route! great pic! I like the emotion on his face!
looks like fun, those shoes take 2 grades off!
if I had spotters, yeah the view might have been scarey!
sporto! use the crack!
great summit, scarey rock!
so many cracks, too little time (to name them),but you gotta try to climb them!
nice! looks straight outa the seventies!
Anyone know about any routes up the center chimney?
took me at least five minutes perching on the edge to finally commit, I LUV SEDONA!
nice pic, I think I'd crop it vertical
great looking route, I like the shadow contrast, and rich color on the left side.
crimping face! how about those cracks?
nice, I like the blue coming thru the great void, gives you a bit of the sense of taking the leap of faith. will someone please rebolt the rappels!
coyote tower (fyi)
gotta love it! nice job, you've captured the sense of being "out there" in the expansive desert climbers paradise.
damn it where's that green camalot?
hold on to your #4's!
the bitch of it is when the knot gets camed and you have to prussik up, lengthen the anchor and then do the sketch rap twice.
I wish the 5mb pic would up-load!
a bit pixelated, might be better in a smaller size
nice pic, I love that steming between three pillars!
is that p2 (5.10) on the E.face?
the rusty chain was the only thing there in Jan03, and the rap ring was not even equalized. to make matters worse you have to trundle down a steep loose chimney bottom, lean out into exposed space to grab these "anchors" A better option would be to place nice fatty bolts on the North face and rap the route.
nice, I like the fact that it looks like you're rapping into the sky!
nice one, Durrl; So once really wasn't enough, eh?
I might as well point out, (before some other tech-wenie does)that the 'biner to 'biner clipping could become unclipped, especially in a side angle fall! carefuk--
so, I did jam while changing corners but the route really does go better laybacking, do it yourself and then criticize me, murf.
no, it lasted a lot longer...
awkward, scarey, exposed: fun
so, what are you doin' tomorrow?
reminds me of JT,
looks like Sedona 5.4
wow, just think how good he'd be as a double amputee!
FA states that the name of this climb is one of the following: Apache Route, 4 flying Apaches, Scenic Route, or Date Route. Its all the same thing, just do it and have fun!
gorgeous, I want to go back; anyone want a partner?
wow, a rack on a boulder problem!?!?!?
JT sunsets are the best!
very cool, another one to add to the list-
Old school 5.9! thats a stout crux! good job.
gotta love wingate!

yes it really is "spagetti western"; the dihedral you remember ends about 40ft up and just at the lower right side where the shadow is, then its two parallel splitters one of which is obscured by the corner. The route does become a corner again and then ends with a short and not too difficult ow.
looks harder but felt like easy 5.10
that beautiful'ow was actually mostly hands and fists, I plan to give it a go next time!
Big thanks to those out there rebolting!
In the mean time clip whatever you can
and try not to fall!
Hmm, where's the next move? Oh yeah where the chalk is! Seriously though, Smith is a mecca.
never mind your head, how are your shorts? mine would have been soiled fur-sure!
ok so were you climbing sea cliffs really relaxed when you noticed the soarded birds? where's the rock climbing? nice pic, anyway.
bomber dude! especially that old creaky reclaimed static rope we found in the wash.
is that urine leaking out of his shorts?
looks like the alps
my favorite problem down there!
why not just name the problem "family outing"?
wow! I thought texas didn't have anything to offer but the villiage idiot!
What is it too hot fer ya in Sedona?
how warm is the water in AK? I think I'd want some bolts as they'll keep my balls on the outside!
I don't remember, does that one have one of those sharp cranium crackers below?
yes RC.COM required at least a speedo as the nude bouldering was found to be too offensive!
too bad the summit got cut
is the rainbow chalk bag a Gay Pride statement? If so good for you! there's nothing wrong with that!
how hard does he climb? trad or sport? oh, he's a boulderer looking for a pad!
I love that pitch, good job!
ah, resting at the agave!
swarms make even a 5.9 scarey!
I use my rock pecker and get in one hole after about all day!
send it on in for the next catalog
line 'em up, it's a gym.
hey yer wearin clothes!
looks like Isolation Cyn. Is that red Quartzite? email me: how do you get there.
sure wish the "guide book" would come out
Have wanted to do that for a long time- it's hard to get somebody to follow! nice pic.
I appreciate the slack in the rope and the threatening skies
makes me dizzy
I'd hate to see his tongue if he were to fall!
very nice- even if you're white!
watch out! here come the Ewoks!
for what it's worth- I'm 34, I fell right there where the chalky spot is, I was leading and it was 113F; nice job kid!
not bad for polygamist!
Hanging Judge is the first splitter to the right of the climber, It remains hard the whole way but doesn't quite top out. The crack further right looks a little easier- aside from getting to it! It does top out and there are anchors- if anybody knows something about it please inform!
so did you just pose or did you go a ways? Cool idea though!~
The climber is 6'1" while the belayer is 5'10" It's all perspective.
When I followed it to the top (2yrs ago) it dodged left from the guano covered hold just above the shadow line to anchors on the face.
now I know why that skinny purple 9mm is so scarey- watch those crampons buddy!
I see you're psyching yourself up to go alpine!
reminds me of the Exasperator in Squamish BC
nice leg, lat and arms; are you a vegetarian?
actually it faces due south at about 5000ft in AZ (dry and warm) the lichen is so hard it really doesn't wear as you climb it!
It'd be better if a climber were on it for perspective!
a "10" even though I hate to give a slacker such a good rating.
looks cool- is it concrete? wish it went on for a full pitch eh?
really? I think the difficult fingerlock is before the second bolt- BTW what the h@LL are volts doing next to a great trad line?
really? I think the difficult fingerlock is before the second bolt-
is that "war hippies" - 'cause that's the way I finished "gone gray"
wow! great summit! have you been up there yet?
yeah, I did that with my little sister.
BTW- Hamid is that some kinda AlQaedi codetalk?Big Brothers watching
nice lead Laurel-
Yeah, you won't find any of my routes bolting up crack lines. The occasional pin, on the otherhand, lends a certain nostalgia while maintaining relative safe climbing.
is it granite? what elevation?
I work in a hospital where we do that to people- ON PURPOSE!
glad to see he finally made it to the front page. too bad he doesn't climb anymore! pin head.
Is Brian a leprechaun? There must be a rainbow around somewhere, 'cause that area is a treasure for sure!
great sunset, pic would score higher if the climber was in a more interesting position.
so if his legs weren't bent would he be standing?
go for the fuzzy spiders!
nice, are there more in sequence?
Jason's from AK, He's used to the cold, actually I'm surprised he has his shirt on!
yeHawww! hand me a Pabst!
I guess the sharp edge of the rock already cut his rope?
nice! I dream of that beautiful mtn.
do you start by swimming? looks like a cool area.
me too, merlin.
looks stellar! how many pitches? what elevation?
looks like you found a sweet flake!
the Higher I get the Higher I get!
can't wait to take the WALK!
great job SteveKai - seems like we may be seeing your name/pic around more!
fRO bRO- nice OW to your left!
hang in there!
there's that damn bolted crack again.
actually there are a couple of flat spots- one good for 2 another big enough for 3.
barely felt like 5.10, exciting pro though!
the route is a lot cleaner than you'd think, you really don't consider smearing on the face as clean crimps and edges appear as you need them.
cool pic- except for the spider-
look there's the car and cold beer waiting!
looks like a limp wristed @ss shot-
could you rotate right?
that gear's still too shinny- why don't you stop admiring it and go take some falls--
looks like a good adventure
reminescent of Wheat Thin- looks way cool--
sweet mother of slabs!
too bad you can't upload the mpeg.
Mike- I like the plaid, You'd look even more local if you had a crusty bill cap and some red suspenders!
quick! GET OUT OF THERE! You're about to get squashed! nice pic!
'e looks like 'e might be one of them extraterrestrials!
I loved that pitch: http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=Show&PhotoID=18162
I dno't know what the 3amigos is like but that power-lieback looks 3star!
I agree, good perspective. would have been even better if the climber's feet were in view.
lookin' forward to it!
sweet crack, @ss shot though
harder than the 5.12 pitch- good lead keith-
doesn't that flake out right give you courage on that rock!
my what nice teedth you have!
finishing the last bit in the shade. 113f back at the car where the cold beers await.
blondeflag1970, you were there! what are you sad that you didn't get ALL the good leads?
blondeflag1970, you must have slept as your snoring kept JM awake!
ah yes, Washerwoman beckons...
now that's my favorite color!
IS THAT RAINIER?
while to rock in the vertical crack is Indian Creek quality - the rock in the horizontal deteriorates. you still place some big cams in it but the bolt gives you enough confidence to GO FOR IT!
sweet route- nice pic!
yeah, we lingered a bit too long before we realized that none of us brought a headlamp and had to descend in the dark...
climb it while you still can! see the forum section.
the "clouds" are con-trails from jets.
hope you had your AvyBeacon!
almost to the belly good!
so, How to keep this injury from happening again?
1. don't fall 2. get more pads 3. learn to place gear 4. quit climbing. I'm going w/ 1 & 3.
I agree, I keep mentioning that to my partner but it doesn't seem to sink in. (gritstoner-took me a moment to figure out your slang!)
awesome- gotta go!
too grainy- otherwise a sweet shot.
nice sed- want to ck it out!
watch those toes!
my good friend (blondeflag1970) taught me it's sometimes better to allow oneself to become dehydrated as the apres-climb beer-buzz lasts longer!
omerdimsum- actually it's dalmation skin- only had to sacrifice 2 puppies--glad ya like it too!
probably attracted to the warmth of your bivvy bag.
Easier than it looks...in fact much easier than the 11+ face up thru the overhanging huecos and very thin crack.
What's My Line--
where can I get some pants like that!?!
Carnage! some chicks love it, although I've never met any of them.
So dude; I you give me your gear -you get new stuff right?- we both win!
Despite whatever resemblance KB has to GW, he is way stronger AND moral! GWB would be down by the pool being served cocktails while figuring out new ways to squeeze a few more dollars out of "The Other 95%" of us.
no, I've got him psyched to thrash his way up more 11+ ow's!
is that a bolted crack line?
just looking at it makes my legs quiver! gotta do it!
I found the descent a "walk in the park" going straight north from the summit dropping down only about 50ft then a cruiser trail back to the highway. we did it in during the short yet warm days of november. fantastic shot BTW
Does anybody have the beta on the overhanging crack to climber's left? Looks like 11+.
the overhanging crack has 2 bolts plus anchors. looks like lots of fingers plus flared hands to ow.
query? when soloing, why wear a harness?
who led it (at night)? I'm impressed.
gotta put that on the list!
wish we could see more of the crack, the tree's ok but the crack would be more interesting. like the moss.
Was the guy in black w/ the shoulder bag the "Thai stick" salesman? He looks just like him from here!
the hangers on the sparsely bolted face pitch above were just GUNENUF!
I'll bet there's a really good hold on the other side!
scarey landing! too bad the stupid miners are there!
yeah, as I said "Spicey!!!" BTW, she's seated and anchored in to some gear; also the fin she's sitting on is only 2ft wide with a 100ft drop to one side and a 200ft drop to the other.
reccomendation: sledgehammer or hacksaw to clean the route!
sed- you're looking at the haul-line. the lead line is just visible to the lower right of the climber, besides he said "reasonable" not abundant!
Is your name "Pat"? you look kinda like the Saturday Night Live character.
ullr- it's done! the final crux is a bit easier than you'd think!
Looks like fun! but then I seem to enjoy choss! Seriously though, I bet it's pretty bomber quartzite crimping!
Awesome! and good weather too!
I love Sedona!
bomber flakes! unless youre >200lbs!
up and left, past a 10a roof move above the little bush then up steep face to the lower angle slabs left of the arete. scarey run-out pitch--now added a drilled pin on second ascent.
2 or 3 toed?
who woulda guessed- Ok!
Oh Vincent! that great pocket just below you waist level.
see ya there rampage!
so shiny and new, let me know if you want to swap for some well tested dirty stuff! BTW, now that you've got it all documented in photographic form how 'bout you let me steal it! you can claim it on your home owners!
I think it woulda been better w/ the rope left in.
reminds me of the time we got chased off the ledge on the pyramid overlooking the ocean by angry machette waving federales.....what a trip!
BAD vibrations, unless the crack is super choss, bolts are bad style.
yep, can you make me some more of those welded cold-shunts?
nice, I prefer dark chocolate over milk.
I agree- looks fun, pic would be more impressive though if it had a climber in it!
cheap incarcerate bastard first ascensionist
nice pods, if I remember...
hard to take a bad picture at The Creek
she surely has sufficient appreciation of that tongue--
ATA-boy! lookin' good!
looks intimidating but fun!
Inspiring...I shoulda called you- was lookin' for someone to play w/ yesterday.
looks like fun
Is that a Rineeeeeeeeeer Beeeeeeeeeer!?
I can almost smell the guano.
nice to see rehab work'd, I think you need a psych consult though.
Hey- that looks like me back in 1987! Of course, I wasn't leading 10b those days!
hmm, looks like he's following-- still a worthy shot- 5.11 friction slab in EB's!
killer view- too bad the frame didn't go a bit more to the south- and if the climber was looking toward the camera: it would have been a "10 " Hope you had somethin better than "skunk" at the top!
I'm surprised to see so much pro! nice-
intense! Moulan Blue!
yeah, and they only give it 5.9!!!!
wow! looks like more than 5.9+!
nice, the sky and the terraine make for an other-worldly effect.
OOOh!!! second could take a scarey 3ft pendulum if that draw unclips itself!!!!
very cool- BIONIC MAN!
looks like pure fun!
YEAH, "PERFECT BIG HANDS"
too bad it's closed!
ok scott, but do you sling Xmas trees in the S.Anchas?
slowdive- no offense taken, feel free to keep on w/ the sarcasm- it's entertaining!
sed- give me a call- anytime!
after 180+ feet of climbing, having back cleaned one draw and placed all but 2 tcu's and a couple of nuts left on my harness I was pretty pleased to make it to the belay with any gear at all. I don't think the second ever felt "at risk", there were plenty of bolts to make the route "reasonable" for both the leader and second.
Aimee- your fingers will fit better!
yep, I call it Ten Roof Rusted!
yep I was Aching
it's pretty sustained between the 2nd and 4th clips.
He's got THE DRIP!
sHOEs? lOOk aT tHOSe ARMs!
I LIKE THE ACTION OF THE FOOT JUST CONTACTING.
DEFINITLY WOULD BE A "10" IF IT'D BEEN SHOT BEFORE NOON IN THE SUN- VERY NICE!
I LIKE THEIR SHADOWS, THE FOREGROUND, HOWEVER, DOESN'T DO THE ROUTE JUSTICE.
LOOKS LIKE FUN
nice koolots dude!
it was so hot the day I did it: I had to do it with just a chalk bag- I mean JUST A CHALK BAG!
alternate tie-in? it'd be nice to loose the weight of a harness!
mi gusta los colores, esta el tipo de roca "volcanic tuff" como Smith Rocks?
I just love the colors!
his back looks strong but the way he's treading water must make it easier!
cupped hands or fists? looks like 3-3.5? sweet!
nice light- wish it was bigger!
dude- that's a nude beach, what're you wearin' shorts fer?
is that whistler-blackcombe?
Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high!
--except in sedona in June!
I've heard it was hard 11+.
"take you CLOSER to God.....like an animal!"
"Best 5.9 in the Universe" but don't tell anyone!
reminds me of something near the top of Absinthe of Mallet...
glad he survived, did he get the $500 fine advertized on a sigh at the top?
note to self: remember to zip up fly before climbing!
Overhangs 25 ft over the course of 160ft of OW joy!
dUDE Yur riPPed! HaPPy bIRTHdAy.
nice contrast, might look better w/ a bit more saturation.
Bandito Style! let's not get caught 'K--
do you set the TR from the elevator landing?
I believe it- you wouldn't want to do the walk off in climbing shoes. nice job, did she solo the whole route including the gram traverse?
love that pitch! nice job!
I remember dropping a couple of bomber hex's in that scalloped crack- Sweet pitch!
I agree, the corner is awesome, too bad the approach pitch takes some of the awe away.
yep, wish we were there rather than geeking in front of the computer!
Sonso; come to the dark side!
I've looked at that crack many times- thanks for the beta- now maybe I'll do it!
favorite problem in KC, sonso- is that your son?
nice shot- I can hardly wait!
great texture, great lines; I like that it looks like a b&w except for the red helmet.
if you were gay (not that there's anything wrong with that), and it was evidenced in this pic -then there'd be another naked dude f*cking you atop that rock. No, I think you're probably straight and feel comfortable with you body. good for you!
looks sweet! we should hook up some time
approx how tall are those routes? If I were to guess I'd say the longest is about 90ft?
This is the view from atop the Ultimate Frisbee.
You're lookin' at the crux right before that bolt!
F#@K it You try, then!
great color, how was the temp that day?
nice! I like the extreme contrast.
yeah- of course you do!
nice tooooooobe socks!
just 4bolts? or is there gear too?
looks like perfectly decent rock to me, and as for the belay- I can't see any big loop in the rope so I assume you're fine!
very nice, I like the shadow.
Trundling is almost as much fun as climbing!
ck out valley of the gods...
leave your ID at home, wear shoes you can climb AND run in!
wow! looks stiff for 10a/9+
how'r those bolts holding up?
The other summits Right to Left are: Aiguille Extra, 3rd Needle, Day Needle, and of course the coveted Keeler Needle.
my tips burn just looking at this
is that a lost cow or did you get a new dog?
still searchin out the choss, eh?
very nice, next time I want to see an inverted pose!
nice, Aimee- is that you?
sonso- yep! rap (5x) the route.
sounds scarey, probably fit right in for sedona!
strong as an ox, but still has back fat!
eres bien fuerte!
ullr- yeah, come on down we can do it on the 4th party ascent! I'd love to watch you figure out these cruxes!
sweet pic! and my favorite Gorge route!
beautiful scenery, wheres the climber?
the horizon seems right to me, the ranges should slope up toward the left.
great pic, love the shadow.
Dylan, so were you slacking high or just high up?
very nice !
great route!~wish I had a #5 back in the day, I remember slinging some chock stone after a long runout- is it still there?
nice! I can almost feel the salty breeze!
no hands belay!?!?!?! are you on her life insurance already!!!!
that's so cruel- using your dog as a crash pad!
are u gay? not that there's anything wrong with that!
oooh, shiney and new! mine have scratches, want to trade?
nice shot of a highly regarded route!
wow! the Capitan is so huge- you must have zoomed in from outer space to capture stars in front of it!
dude! is that a skeletonized hand sticking out from under that chockstone!
O V E R S A T U R A T E D ! ! !
hope you had a rock face to climb; as it's mother probably doesn't like photographers!
dude, you may be strong but you're not that big!
nice shot, roadman; you make it look much less desperate than I remember!
you got cojones Josh, I wasn't able to talk myself into that one!
yep, nice hat; but where did you get those pants!
The Cat in the Hat Comes Back!
Queen Victoria is located in the Schnebly hill section not west sedona; is this El Bandito OR Queen Victoria?
actually I already decreased the saturation, the pic was take just before sunset so the light was really golden, and the rock actually is that color!
looks like a fun route!
definitely a sea of granite!
nice, Mark; had a good day with you!
better living through choss!
yes- stunning, what are the first two pitches like?/ how high before you have to climb 5.12?/ are there anchors to rap off early?
nice- right where it gets good!
very nice color/silhouette
wow manny! you've been busy- looks like a lot of new stuff to ck out!
nice job Daniel!
actually, that cam felt pretty bomber, I was stoked when I dropped it in !
sorry --low res-
worse foto-she's cute!
nice contrasts: coarse granite/smooth skin.
Nice! the shadow is very ZEN!
whee! I get nervous laughter at times like those.
nice leg/bod, but did the Federale's chase you off the pyramid with their machete's?
nice job Mark!
dude, you're just proud of your "fleshy". nice gas bubble near your R coccyx! Bouldering is dangerous- get a rope!
too bad he isn't ROCKCLIMBING!
gotta love those pods!
one great day after another! good job on that lieback.
now that's rock climbing!!!!!!
nice, looks relaxed.
sweet! I can feel the action!
looks like nice rock
is it as good as the DOFP at the Stronghold?
nice job Melinda! work that friction!
Indian Creek Quality! 5.12 in the book- damn he must be good!
the brake hand never leaves the rope- don't worry buddy!
funny, but sick.
Mmmmmmmmm! Cloud Tower!
not to be confused w/ the route of the same name in the Church area.
Is it better to have dull front points, so that you dont cut your rope?
Classic route, worth many a repeat.
difficult onsite, much more feasible the second time around.
"a series of unfortunate holds"
Purple haze is on my mind! too bad climbing has become so mainstream .
sweet formation, description is interesting...
nice shot! there's a route of the same name in Pumphouse Wash, AZ
excellent artistic shot! the clouds seem to be steam rising from the cup!
GOOD JOB- getting past the poop stalactites in the cave!
yep- good lookin' vertical face to same finnish- next time!
yeah, the bolt seems excessive; though for some reason I can't bring myself to not clip it! ---Love that spot!
looks nice- remindsa me of Iso.
I thought for a second it was sedona!
Genereic- black and white.
ready for a whipper!
I hate grafitti
beautiful big crack!
nice job- even if you aided it! btw - how are the feet out the roof?
comfy belay, nice line.
I like the askew helmet!
high quality shot- this could be a magazine cover!
reminescent of "room to shroom"
leave the ATV at home, looks like your legs work.
ouch! I can hear the tendon popping!
brr... looks like a frozen dream!
looks like fun!
during winter, this is a good afternoon route.
Classic pitch- I love it!
yes the finnish is spicey- I think it makes it more memorable though.
looks good- who's "MG"
yep, good eye-it popped when I lowered from the anchors.
poor style- aren't you supposed to be nude?
a worthy spanking!
did this as one sick pitch: linked P1 + P2 for the full OW OD.
great route, great smile!
I think it looks easier than it is but is easier than it's rated: 11a but probably only 10d.?
gotta like those lichens!
how's the exit?
features like that always make me wonder- should I hand traverse and friction or just trust my feet?! nice job Manny- I look forward to getting on it!
I hadn't noticed, but yeah- there are a lot! how many do you see?
nice piece of rock!
nice sense of elevation
yeah that initial pro you placed gave me a sense of security; from then on I wasn't too worried about my own neck!
I can feel the granite crystals biting!
is he hanging on the bolt?
welcome back form your hiatus, 1.5yrs off rock.
Manny, I'm disapointed; looks like that last bolt is right next to a tcu placement.
is it the name? how come nobody likes this pic?
reminds me of my old school Fire's
Signage stem bouldering: Homeland Gestapo take note!
2/3 the way up the second ow pitch!
not one of my favorite places- but still a great shot!
I can imagine a better style for "full frontal"
yo deseo el otro
me gusta los colores rasta!
it don't mean a thing if you aint got that swing!
I don't remember that scene in the movie, wasn't it about a fishing trip?
cams? why not just use nuts!
killer bees no doubt!
must be V10, I hate greasy holds.
scarey first, super cool second pitch, not as bad as you'd expect third pitch.
love that route!
better than paradise!
too cold to go "naked"?
did you follow the white rabbit?
looks like you like #2 camalots, nice pic, wish you were a chick though!
looks a lot like Kelly Canyon bouldering area...
4stars out of 5, great moves, reasonable pro over mostly good rock.
looks like digital blasphemy.com!
looks like he's confused about where to put his L foot!
wish I could give it an "11"
wow the rock is so RED!... or is that the dust in my eyes?
must be a sport climber!
nice looking cliff, good job on the 11a FA.
climb it one jam at a time, stop at the top of the route & nope he's till up there!
classic route, nice job!
by the angle of the trees it looks to be a lot steeper than it first seens.
bumper belay! was the car stereo pumpin?
looks like pitch one of Black Quacker
nice splitter! makes me want to go!
I love this climb, too. Glad to see the tree is still there- or has someone added a bolted anchor?
very nice summit!
looks like there's only one piece of pro?....hope he doesn't get flushed down the pipe!
Nice Quartz chrystal hold!
I love that route!
mmmm- guano climbing!
I like the shadow
fine perspective of Mescalito and Cloud Tower!
That is a sweet line, I remember hiking out of WLR, seeing that and knowing I just had to do it. We jumped on it not knowing what it was and hoping there was an anchor to get off! Nice job.
looks like he's underclinging the right butt cheek of a giant!
this is the best, I gave it a 10!
gnarly! yeah I think you should submit this pic to the catalog!
I hate Randy and Leigh!
that is beautiful!
looks alot like kelly canyon, AZ.
is that recent? what year was that done? cool summit!
looks like fun, how cold is the water?
no James, I dove; the water is probably 10-15ft deep!
great route, nice stem.
a butt shot, but cool none the less.
JT has the best camp scene! nice pic, takes me back!
very nice clear pic- makes me miss Shasta...
great climbing picture!!!!?????
great route- ok pic.
did he swim?
escape from the black hole!
nice shot, I like the seaspray!
yep, it helps to have a svelt female...
looks like a classic!
killa' exposure! congrats scott, nice line.
Ouch! my heals hurt just looking at this.
sweet looking crack, are the sides offset or parallel?
Is Owl Rock now off limits per the Park Service?
I like the cookie monster chalk bag!
nice focus- both photographer and Hillary.
cooles foto. hat er's gemacht? ich glaub ich hab ihn schon vor nem monat in der tour gesehen..?
I like the similar shapes of his curly hair hanging down and the curly leaves coming up.
looks like you were there early or very late in the day by the lack of light on the wall. We still need to paint those hangers- that is unless they melted in the Brins Fire of 06/18.
Jen-that's what I said the first time I did it.
bad third clip w/ a dangerous fall potential. I'd reccomend moving the second clip up and removing the thrid.
beautiful- too bad that whole mesa to the Left is now burned.
looks like fun!
The moment of faith...
what a great route!
gud e nuf!
nice one Manny, I like the big clunker cams swinging!
must have been a lot of time cleaning, eh?
I believe these bolts were placed for the boats ( who drop the touron's off at Lovers Beach) to clip to.
I'll post the best one in larger format; I think the sequence is worthy, though.
nice, I've been thinking of doing this.
looks like mustard
OW climber trick #2: knee pads! Can't say I reccomend the bare arms though!
looks beautiful- nice one Collin!
nice action but looks over bolted for sure.
best raven pic I've seen- thx!
Have you done that awesome OW "Dark Star"?
Nice stance. I remember not wanting to leave that spot- pretty tough getting into and beyond that next pod!
nice shot I wish it was a little clearer- maybe it's time to invest in more megapixels? Laurel, are you Palestinian, aside from the cleavage you look like Arafat!
Great pic! but did he pull it off or just take a swim?
I like it a lot!
good Profile pic!
I think he's just trying to show off those muscles!
the title made me click on it.....
looks like great rock to me, course I'm used to Sedona sandstone!
good action, nice contrast of B&W, would have been better framed had both feet made it into the pic.
looks like a great day!
Belayer- thinking to herself:"wait, wait, Now! I'll pull hard!" Too bad missed that OnSight!
how'er the mosquitos?
Cheat! the right wall is off - (I expect)
how does one fall 70ft when the bolts are 4-5ft apart?
great spot for it!
I wish it was clearer.
and what happens after >>you take the mushroom?
for a sec, I thought you were stemmed between the wall and the tree!
squeal like a pig!
doesn't instil confidence, but then neither does your photography.
good job Mike, isn't that the spot that tweaked your knee?
hey! where am I?
Nice stance for that drilling that bolt, ground up- good on-ya!
nice find, good job Scott.
nice one, thin start; I like the climber shadow.
well said Cragmasterperv!
If you aren't already, I think you should be sponsored by Wildcraft.
that flaring crack doesn't inspire much in the way of gear, plus it'd be in the way of your hand hold. nice shot.
is there a second climber disapearing in to the flake?
I like your specialized chimney climbing equipment!
sweet formation- very inspiring!
overall a good pic, but I find the frame distracting and it might be more interesting if shot wider and horizontally.
standard style is sans clothes
good pose, great summit; what's with the pants- it's supposed to be "streaker"
looks slippery like a squid!
even better than the aiguille de Joshua tree!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, not that block! just kidding, I trundled the headstone that was resting there.
I love that route!
wow, you can even see the scrotum!
Hey man, do you ever go RAPELLING?
Christine, did you enjoy climbing on top of that penis?
crag w/ a view!
Actually the rock felt bomber, the giant old rusty ring pins were scarey though!
Actually that bar is to protect your rope from friction as the chain anchor is set a way back from the ledge the bar is on.
looks great Manny; you'll have to show me someday!
My first lead, and my first fall on a #0 tcu! Yeah, it's pretty stiff for a 5.7!
Manny, you look scared!
nice corner- the rock looks a lot better than I'd heard it to be.
great route, nice job Manny. how'd you like the calcite chrystals?
Nice, the action of the swinging gear adds a real time sense.
wow, with the camo I almost missed him!
Chosschick- nice pic, I like the vantage. If you like choss you should check out Sedona!
Pyrosis- we'll have to get you out to Iso then...
very nice, great color!
I think that's Devil's Deed (5.9) fairly stiff for that grade.
great! sketchy but do-able!
2006-11-05 -- I did it 2wks ago, the holds are solid but it helps to either be 6'4" or be able to lock off w/ your left arm to your waist to pull the crux!
lookin' at that makes my heart race!
Awesome! I been lookin' at that feature for some time. Nice to see it's been done. I guess now there's a reason to climb 5.13- I gotta do this!
nice composure, I like the sky & her top similarity.
nice Josh, reminds me of the Stronghold!
I wonder how abraided his shoulders got?
sedona is not for everyone, but it is a good place to really appreciate living!
great memory! we backed off 2nd pitch of LT back in the mid 90's after climbing way too slowly. I remember dangling from the end of the rope, 300ft above the valley floor and about 10feet out from the wall. I clipped a bunch of slings together and lasooed that dead tree to pull in to the ledge and escape!
The ultra classic corner to Left traversing roof is 10d, almost as difficult on the shady North face is a finger to flared crack "Fingering Xena"
wild colors! the climbers shirt does a nice jo accenting the lichen.
wish it was bigger- the pic not the crack!
sepia! I like it.
I don't remember carrying half as much gear for the Fox, did you really need it? Or are you training for Big Walls?
If the route really is that great; it ought to be linked to the data base.
Luis- nice job on you first OW! If you want to try something slightly harder search for the Ultimate OW located near Sedona.
nice job on the pitch, hard to get a good pic there.
looks like adventure!
wow! can you say Barn Door?
Super clean rock.
It would be nice if this was linked to the route database.
Hey Manny, how many pitches did you do? The short second one has a great crux!
did you do the third?
Is that a prosthetic? Awesome!
nice pic, did you do the 10+ Lefthand chimney/roof finnish? It's worthwhile.
looks like it must stink by his expression!
DWS -beautiful blue!
Solo to the anchors? What's up with his right lower leg.
wierd angle, makes the SE face look slabby.
based on the afternoon sun- it looks like the route is actually due south facing, not East. Although it does face "the Jap"
hey, if he wanted to he could sit in the passenger seat and tune the radio while belaying!
looks pretty sweet- sandstone? Limestone? quartzite? what is ist?
I hope the sign doesn't say somethin like "No Rockclimbing"
that looks sweet!
Streaker spire is located in the "church spires" group. it is actually only 5.7. It is a good intor to sedon spire climbing, leave your clothes on the ledge!
be a better pic w/ a climber in it.
Teddy bear in repose.
photo credit is distracting, otherwise a great shot.
dont forget to tie in to that belly ring!
and I thought offwidths were for masochists!
nice place to ck out the city lights!
wow! what a handicap to have only one arm and one leg!
interested to hear where the other 6 were from...
do they even grant permits?
looks like a cool place!
RedPoint by CrackMD
cool, I like the Ocotillio silouettes as well
looks like fun!
11ish? where is the crux?
truly a sweet shot! I look forward to getting on this one soon!
drillin' ground up!
I like rounded slopers!
apparently everybody but you,Stephenreynoso, know that the MonkeyFace is at Smith Rocks.
be a better pic if you got his L foot.
yeah, a few bolts on the first pitch would really make a difference. I just found out that 7yrs ago a guy took a ground fall resulting in a serious head injury- he still isn't the same. I'm kinda glad I didn't know that though when I was leading it.
no, actually, you can go wrong! hasn't stopped me yet though.
looking strong Keith!
the original high res version looks much better.
Note: nice view of Oak Creek Spire
"Further" takes you 180ft to the anchor.
killer approach I'll bet!
She's not wearing underpants!
I'll bet she always has a willing spotter.
is this a resubmission? it seems like I've seen it before.
I doubt it Manny, there's probably a TR hidden in the crack.
hard core- who's climbing?
looks pretty sweet!
nice pic, Josh. When I did that one; I was at that anchor when I heard something whistling down, I ducked in and was nearly hit by a dead raven that must have got blown into the wall above.
I like it, except he's flipping us off!
looks like nice moves.
anillilator! and soft rock!
Great view of Mt Russel!
Manny's got a new crag!
"I can fly, I'm so much luckier than you..."
I hate graffiti!
Urmas watches from below the Lower Religion wall
looks like a beautiful trad climb.
we all like a well trimmed bush!
nice perspective, that looks awesome!
aren't those things for flavored tobacco?
now that's a rope gun!
what does it go at? are ther routes on the sunny vertical wall down low?
I think Iv'e seen it at Red Rocks, but I can't remember exactly where...
I'm curious about the ratings for the jump across. Could you delineate the grades? We have many sandstone spires in Sedona AZ which require jumps or body leaning spans.
great shadow, nice capture of the moment.
don't pinch more than you need.....
interesting- makes me want to climb it
Trippy! and- wow; would you look at the time!
nice pic-but actually no blossom there. They are clusters of light yellow flowers and only occur every seven years or so- that's why the JT's are at risk.
another bolted beautiful trad line...... :(
she certainly looks strong.
"as you wish, young Wesley"
interesting blurr effect
keith- get back to work, and clean him up while you're at it!
coffee does help, but I don't reccommend the nescafe- try the local Italian roast expresso!
wish it were bigger.
jump grasshoppa jump!
Yeah that second pitch is pretty heady for 5.7; I remember the first time I got on MentalPhysics, it got pretty dark and we decided to back off but we only had a 165ft rope and had to get creative to get off. I highly recommend going back for the second pitch though- you'll remember it forever!
yeah, it is tilted a tad.
you are quite limber, but I never see you do that pose with the other leg; maybe you should balance it out some...
I love it!
sounds like somethin' I might do; good on ya!
you may want to tag this with "canyoneering"
reminds me of the Exasperator!
clean granite flakes!
I think there's a bomber pocket in the center!
cool looking problem- too bad about the graffitti
nice use of a cane, I guess that makes it A1V1!
Sonso is it you?
looks like fun!
why did they name it that?
looks like she's almost ready for "streaker spire"
this pic would be even sweeter if you cropped out the ledge and pack!
I like it!
You must have taken sex-ed; the rhythm method doesnt work, but I see you have plenty of alternate protection!
Is it in JT?
great route! cool multiple cruxes.
reminescent of the psychedelic tree...
sweet shot, I like the "spotter"
happy Valentines, honey; here is your bouquet
wish it was larger.
piensas "puedo desprenderse?"
short yet cool looking route, nice pic.
beautiful landscape, nice weather!
nice line, legs.
did you tunnel thru?
looks like a goo place to get out of the sun.
6pitches as I recall, located off Tioga pass (Eastern Tuolomne)
nice tighty whities!
sit down start, eh?
Mmmm, if BEARDED CABBAGE, were located on on YOUNG WOMAN it'd be so much more enticing!
safely -far above the broken beer bottles and used hypodermics!
yes, nice saturation
sweet action pic!
gorgeous! I'd love to see a topo!
awesome route! nice pic.
reminds me of 3rd Pillar of Mt Dana
Aimee, I bet you can still lead 12a!
yeah he has a segment in return2sender, he climbs well; if only he had less attitude...
wish it were larger
maybe a Peruvian Cuy?
how hard? any gear?
why capitalize "Hoe", is that a self description?
ah the memories, how 'bout "resin in my bowl"?
cameltoe must be another perspective.
nice action, I like the hand shadow.
and the rounded one to the Left is "Pointy Dome"
that's using your head!
Dont push too hard w/ that right leg!
I've always refered to it as the Devil Dog Dick!
There is NO X in TR.
How tall is this feature?
looks pretty sweet!
looks like he's arm barring and liebacking an OW! looks like an adventure.
very No Doubt!
beautiful! reminds me of Pitch 3 of Abracadabra.
looks like a good spot for difficult sport climbing too!
you look strong Laurel
you should have no problem attracting partners.
Is Walker ridge the shady arete?
looks like a good adventure
one more thrust!
gotta love clean granite!
I hope he didn't ball-flop!
looks a lot like sedona!
I cleaned a few loose flakes, it really isn't too bad; I wasn't freaking w/ the pro anyway.
would be better rotated 90degrees counterclockwise
beautiful, great spot! are there any free routes in the area?
looks like a serious groin pull!
ooo- tats and the secret devil sign!
what shoes are those?
now you need a #5
too bad she's not ON the rock!
looks like the start of an interesting blog....
I heard that was one of the most frequently climbed routes in JT to get injured on!
nice perspective, too bad so much of the foreground is out of focus.
looks like old guru on the mtn.
I believe you are making the USL for "I love you" toward yourself. Are you narcisistic?
poor picture, but very interesting rock.
not much talus, can't be too bad!
scarey! but cool!
man, you would float Levitation 29 at RedRocks!
Thialand: where climbing is more safe than belaying!
no V8 is a vegatable drink!
nice looking crack
stone carved snake's head?
wow, looks like you have some locals with you; and nobody seems to mind climbing over the petroglyphs?.....
keep it on the DL!
nice pic, does "sodomistenweg" mean fisting or fingering the stink hole?
looks like it would hold but hard to clean
gotta love traversing out past a 3/8in spinner that is only half-way driven.
note: Kyla, the good crag-dog, patient and quietly waiting at tbe base!
how many pitches?
brrrrrrrrrrrr....I think I prefer feigning heat stoke and sand blasting!
once you turn that corner and see the beautiful crack going up the perfectly varnished face you just gotta be stoked! thanks for the memory!
Nightmare in Black Corridor! that's why I prefer long grueling approaches.
how's the ethic there these days? still run out and ground up?
Man, that takes good concentration!
reminds me of psychedelic tree!

nice tape glove marks! You should sling that can for OW protection!
I always found saffron to taste rather bland...
there's a little black spot on the sun, today...
If you can't go climbing you might as well go boouldering...
yeah, you woulda got yelled at- as I did in 1999.
muy bonita, donde esta? que dificil?
I'm just a man but I'd be weeping, too.
I think this picture would be even more inte3resing inverted!
strong arms, weak legs; I think you need to cross train!
worthy adventures to be sure!
I almost missed the climber due to the camoflage- thanks for wearing khaki pants!
wow, you look pretty tough for having just climbed 5.1!
looks like good adventure
nice view of Mt Russell, Fishhook arete and Mithral dihedral
boobybloss, get a thicker skin- it was just a joke!
PUBLIC PICTURES GET PUBLIC COMMENTS- URA SAVAGE!
Bobby, you don't look particularly gay to me. However, it is evident that you are pretty sensitive. Not that there is anything wrong w/ being gay. Remember, you're not gay as long as you're giving it!
makes for an especially exciting boulder problem!
I like the wide angle for scale, but, zoomed in would show the climber(Manny) and the route better.
how about more beta...?
good route, I finally did it!
at least mine were monochromatic.
Sorry OldLumpy, we didn't know you'd been there, I have yet to do this one-next time. Crappy name or not- it's the one I know.
hey that's me on "FREE REFILLS" I think I'll come back for more!
pic makes it look low angle- which it probably is not!
he's ripped! I like the peace tat! nice contrast!
top of the world!
crooked river and Da Monkey!
so much for good japanese engineering...at least they invented the hybrid synergy drive.
double thumbs up!
sounds like a gymnastic maneuver
good depth of field
DID YOU MEAN TO POST THIS ON "dROPzONE.COM"?
nice pic Ullr!
Hey Manny- when do you want to finish "Digital Exam"?
nice exposure, none the less!
cool looking route, too bad he's hanging...
looks like nice rock
I like your attitude!
love that route!
looks like you're still on the trail...
"there must be a hand jam in there somewhere!"
great edging but really not the place to smear.
looks like you ought to spread some chalk on the other holds!
Umpqua? reminds me of a place where we used to hold the naked DWS championship on the Applegate.
those aussies love their Uggs!
looks like a decent boulder problem
I agree, get a rack, that's no sport climb!
bolts in an open book! I'll bet it was Fckn'hard and the rock was chossysoft or seamed up.
Nice line, Manny.
I like it!
everybody loves one!
nice job on the link up!
Don't you hate it when you 'package' gets pinched in your leg loops?!
lotta green mota at the botta that crag!
reel'em in, you got one on the line!
is that a bottle of coppertone in the foreground?
