Window Route  Sucess!

With Brooke from Boston. One of the best spire climbs near Sedona. The approach is a pleasant shaded affair on mostly trail until you leave the wash. With all the approach beta out there, it is really simple. Leave the main wash for the wash between Lily Flower and Supercrack Towers to the base of the route. The climb has a nice remote feel compared to others in Sedona. The first pitch is all bolted with the crux being a short traverse at the top with a bit of exposure. The 2nd pitch is fantastic, turning the chimney out to the west from full on stem to jam then up a nice finger/hand crack. The last pitch is wide, the chockstone mentioned here and there is gone, thus a bit more true off width technique. Arm bar to heel hook is what I used. Took 1 5 and 2 4's and placed them all on this pitch. Fit enough that carrying that extra weight does not affect me personally. Might even be happy with a #6.
