Well Jim, if you do run rotating laps on Abra and Kneed Me, say what ? 5 trips up it, you'll be all set for the Nose adventure ?

Probably more fun climbing the sunlit slabs on the west side though :-)

Got out to the Waterfall in Oak Creek Canyon for the first time the other day. Pretty awesome climbing but pretty terrifying sitting at the base and listening to small to medium size rocks crashing down every so often. Here is my buddy Danny on the classic looking Black and Tan

Best single pitch climbing in AZ. IMHO is the Waterfall Area in Sedona.

Love that Black & Tan climb. And that's the warm-up. I got on the sword and geez/// Waterfall is awesome! Tried to get there last weekend, but it had been raining so much a few days prior the river was too treacherous to cross. It was beautiful, I had never seen the waterfall raging at full force (or at all) until this day. Yes, scary rockfall-that choss band around the top it is interesting, to say the least. AZ climbing is so much fun. Gonna miss it a lot if I end up moving back to CO.

When the river is flowing too fast to cross walk upstream for 5 minutes and you will find a bridge.

3 new routes at the waterfall in the past 2 days by a local Gnarbarian - 2 5.12c cracks and one 5.12c mixed line.

Is that one of the photos Eric took this weekend, Jefe?

It's incredible.

The Wasteland

I can't believe I'd never done this route before.
It's a six pitch voyage that wanders up faces, a chimney, and under roofs with tons of glory climbing on classic Stronghold chickenheads. There is no fixed pro on the whole route, with belays at ledges or hanging off plates.
The old Backcountry guide calls it the best 5.8 in the state. I don't know about that, but it sure was fun.
I climbed with my buddy, who I mentored in climbing, and we swapped pitches. I was super proud of him as he'd never done anything like this before.
Another friend wanted a day out with the dogs and to fiddle around with some nice powerful lenses. He got some cool photos.

The silhouette photo above was pure luck, taken from the trailhead, a 40 minute hike away.
