Looking from Back-O-Beyond Rd or anywhere on the trail up, Middle Mesa is the large tri-summited spire between the Mace on the far left and North Mesa on the right. To date there are three routes on Middle Mesa, the North Face (actually east)Tough Crack to Nut 5.9, Welcome to Sedona 5.11+, and The Pirate 5.10+. The Pirate is on the North face and is very visible to tourists hiking up the trail. It is a great option on a warm day. The other two routes are more secluded (across from the Mace rappel) and see more sun.
All routes on Middle Mesa are very easily approached. Just hike up the tourist trail from the Back-O-Beyond Rd parking lot. Just before the saddle, veer left off the trail as if you were going to the Mace. The first route you come to is The Pirate. 80 feet to the left is Welcome to Sedona and Tough Crack to Nut is around the corner and up in the Mace rappel gully.
