Hiking the Cow Piles trail toward Technicolor Corn...

Description 

This is the long and beautiful butress east of Moose's Butte. It holds the classic routes Eptaph and Technicolor Corner, among others.


Getting There 

Drive up Schnebly Hill Road past the Moose's Butte, and park at the Cow Pie trail head. (you'll think you've gone too far.) Follow the Cow Pie trail as it contours left under a large cliff (home to Arch Enemy) twards the Flying Butress. Eventually you'll reach a saddle between the Teapot and the Flying Butress. Technicolor corner is the big obvious corner on the south face near the saddle, and Epitaph is the huge roof you can see on the west face farther down.

Technicolor Corner. <br />

Technicolor Corner 5.10 6b 20 VII- 19 E2 5b AZ : Sedona Area : ... : Flying Buttress
This is one of the best corners in Sedona. You can rap after the corner pitch, or if you feel guilty for having too much fun and want to pay your pennance, continue on to the top. It gets sun almost all day.Pitch 1) 5.8 60' Ugly. Climb a junky pitch to the ledge at the base of the corner and build a belay. The belay takes #1 and #2 Camalots real well, but if you're trying to save this size a spot for a #3.5 can be found.Pitch 2) 5.10 100' Beautiful. Jam or layback the corn...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
