Talk to Eric Filsinger ... He is writing a book about it. Nov 25, 2015
Anyone have an up-to-date record of topos, first ascent parties, route ratings and FA dates for Sven Towers I,II &/or III? Information does not have to be complete, anything you have will be valuable. Available info seems to be mostly by word of mouth... Oct 31, 2015

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. Aug 11, 2010
