Great pictures, Mark! I have looked at that climb so many times - so intimidating.

OK, I pulled up some shots from the rounds doing the Sedona guide:

Yeah, West Elden is such a great crag, especially when the summer wildflowers are out. That route's a great one; it does overhang a good bit. Here's a pic of me doing Twilight Zone in '78.

Twilight Zone was one of my favs. in the early '80's. West Elden is the shred!

Twilight Zone was 5.11 when I first did it on a rack of nuggets. Ed Webster had bagged the FFA with one fall and Scott Baxter sent me up to do the first clean ascent not long after that. I remember a long throw to a flared hand jam at the crux to get past the steepest section above the handrail into space that leads you into the Twilight Zone.

No camera around the day that I did that one but your shots of Waugh look properly oriented and are sweet Mark! Do not adjust your set.

Gotta do Megadeath too while you are there...

Lookin' good, Steve!

Megadeath is "old school" 5.9 (translation: some suffering will likely be part of the experience).

There's one from the vault!

Count on Larry to have a camera. I forgot that one.

Big Ole Teeton on my hip just in case it got wider than a #11 Hex up high.
