Description 

Marg's Draw area is a wonderfully wild area located southeast of a border formed by highway 179 along the west and Schnebley Hill Road along the north. This area contains a vast number of towers and spires with some really good climbing on them. This is a great place to visit, whatever the reason!!

Getting There 

If you drive south on 179 from the "Y" in Sedona, then turn east on the road just south of the small Circle K, you can park at the Marg's Draw Trailhead. Follow signs to the trail, then access formations as described individually.

After several exploratory attempts to free climb the first ascent of the tower from the notch, we faced the fact that an aid climb would be required to summit. And no more spectacular aid climb could be found than the series of shallow corners that split the southwest face. In late winter, we hiked loads of aid gear into the tower, and Grossman spent the day leading the first pitch. We fixed a rope with plans to return the next day and finish, but winter arrived (note to skiers: if you ever want...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
