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.

A wonderful route up an aesthetic crack on a steep tower. Every pitch is different. Every pitch is steep. The second pitch alone is worth the price of admission. Requires all types of climbing from fingers to squeeze chimney to thin face. Pro is pitch specific, and it is often possible to leave un-needed gear for the follower if one is so inclined.P1: A long pitch, 150' or more. A few thin face moves lead past a bolt to a stance. Pass some so-so rock to good rock and a great crack, then u...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
