DescriptionA Sedona landmark. The rock that welcomes you into Sedona when coming from the north. Not as clean or user friendly as its neighbors Tisha and Princess, getting to the top of this one will surely be an adventure.
Getting ThereFollow the directions to Tisa/Princess. From Midgley Bridge follow the Wilson Canyon Trail until Jim Tompson Trail comes in from the left. Take a left until this trail comes very close to the obvious slickrock buttress coming down from Steamboat. Exit the main trail and follow a good use trail up the buttess to the base of the rock. A short ladder is fixed to the limestone band on the north face. Climb this and hike to the route of your choice.
Update 1.30.17: FYI, the old boyscout ladder was removed from Steamboat Rock. I guess they were worried about liability. It is now easy 5th class for about 15ft. Not too exposed. We set up a TR to get the dog up! - Mark G.
