Nolan Burman told Rock and Ice, “Pepperland (5.11+) is a route that takes you to the summit of Submarine Rock in Sedona, Arizona put up by my good friends Derek Field and Dave Spies.

“One night after work, Derek eagerly hiked out with me to sneak in a sunset climb. I attempted to onsight the devious, blank, and almost vertical slab without a single spec of chalk on the holds. Moving up towards the slightly spaced second bolt, I didn’t keep my hips in tight enough to the wall and the slab spit me off.

“I fell and hit the lower angle terrain below and almost flipped upside down! We took a moment to gather ourselves and assess the damage before I finished the climb with only mildly bruised ankles and a little rope burn. Another great adventure in Sandland!”

Good stuff Nolan!

Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!
