Mike reaching the crack. Hugo belaying on the expo...


Traversing up and left is soft slabby climbing to a nice crack heading to the top.


Approach from saddle between Dry Creek Spire and Beer Bottle Spire on north face.

Great route, perfect for a newer climber's first Sedona tower, with spectacular movement and solid protection at the crux. The crack section takes finger size cams, and a bomber gold camalot placement before committing to the lieback mantle. Above the mantle, take special care to runner your gear appropriately, to avoid drag pulling the final last (exciting) moves. Currently there is a bomber tree to anchor and belay the follower. A rap station is located down and right of the anchor tree, and its on top of a stout 5.10 top rope route. Have fun & be safe!
