Until recently, climbers knew Sedona, Arizona mostly for vortexes, Pink Jeeps, and chossy climbing.
High adventure on low quality rock is the essence of Sedona’s climbing history. While I dabbled in climbing the red rock classics, they never grabbed me or kept my attention for long. After nearly a decade of climbing elsewhere in Northern Arizona, I have returned to Sedona to seek out hard climbs on good rock. Could they exist?
