Description Suggest change

Courthouse Butte is the humongous looking mesa formation that sits just east of Bell Rock (Oak Creek Villages). There are only a handful of routes on this massive formation. I believe the first ascent was done many years back (early 1900's) by a Flagstaff hiking club, but haven't found any documentation to back this up yet.

Getting There Suggest change

Park in the main Bell Rock trailhead across from the Bike 'n Bean bike shop. Take good (golf cart quality) wide trail right over to Courthouse Butte.
