4 out of 5 stars Grip N Spin Sedona

Love this route! I was visiting from CA and wanted to take a family friend out there who has never climbed its a little tough for the noobies but a great climb for the rest. It was a little tricky to find but the approach is a few feet. Go off airport road at the scenic turnout, once you have reached the main area of the secenic view go left around the front of those main rock formations. Look around for the bolts and once you find them have fun! Bring a camera because the backdrop is a kodak moment.

4 out of 5 stars Good Starter

A short, safe, and easily-accessed route. Three bolts and two fixed-ring anchors on a 30 or 40 foot (?) sandstone face, a short walk from the trailhead on Airport Road. Not much of a defined crux--if there is one I'd say it's above the two fixed-ring anchors when you climb over a lip to get to the top of the face using (at least I used) finger jams and friction holds to get to the top. This was my first real sport climbing and free climbing and this is a great route for practicing some less intense free climbing.
