Hey Nick, when heading down from Flagstaff you will cross oak creek at Slide Rock, continue about a mile or two and you will see a smallish pullout on the right side of the road with a fairly small trail sign, if you pass the campground on the left you've gone too far and if you pass the waterfall you've definitely gone to far! As far as the routes, Heart and Soul is about a 30 min hike up the trail and the Chutes and Ladders Wall and Sterling Wall are about another 10 min hike towards the top of the pass. Hope it you get up there,I'd love any feedback you might have on the lines! Feb 14, 2015
