Featured Route For Sven Towers
The bottom slab is cruxy to the horizontal crack/ledge.

Left Route 5.7+ 5a 15 V+ MVS 4b  AZ : Central Arizona : ... : Sven Tower 3
The crux will hit you after the second bolt - the gap before the arete can be backed up with a Alien or cam but beware of your rope getting sucked up into the seam above... its sharp and I would not want to take a whipper sawing into that. Higher up there are some solid slab moves ... be prepared for the 7+ move....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

The City of Scottsdale and the local AMC members have spent the time to make sure there is trail signage in this area. Although there are a number of faint trails to Sven 1 ... please try and use the trail that leads to 3 and work your way back to 2 instead of blazing up the side of the mountain.

@Linda - Its about a 15 min walk to the saddle - 5 minutes to the base of Sven 3
and another 5 minutes back up the hill and over to two and one...
