We had spend hours the night before finding the base of our climb "the 4 Apaches/ Sedona Cruise" In the morning we decided that it just wasn't a good idea to climb such a new route without 2 helmets. Plan B was supposed to be easier than the Mace. It was, except for the horrible (classic hand crack) 2nd pitch. I tried and tried to get my fist to hold, I need more experience or my fist is just too small... it kept slipping at the most inopportune time. There were NO face holds, TRUST ME I looked!! I inched my way up the crack using everything I could fit into that crack and Mike took in slack. It was a slow process but I made it up. Score: Hand Crack-25 JP-0
The rest of the climb required a very loose top rope, mainly because it was more of a side rope because of all of the traverses. If taken tight, I would have been pulled off of the climb. If I fell I would have a horrible pendulum swing; possibly would have to practice ascending the rope with my prusik...

This climb has a funny name and I have all sorts of theory's on why it's called this... I may just have to ask the Red Barron. I was a bit irritated at the anchors at the top, Nothing was bomber.. but at this point I wondered if there was any other way to get down. We finished the evening again at the local little Oak Creek tap room but this time the hot dog guy wasn't there so we settle for a nut brown and some popcorn. ;)
