Description

A large and impressive face of coconino sandstone located at the east end of Dry Creek basin. The wall is home to several hard single pitch routes as well as a few multi pitch ones. The great dihedral, a ten pitch route and potentially the longest in Sedona, is located here.

Getting There

From west Sedona, take dry creek road to Forest service road 152C. Follow this for 4.4 miles to its end. You will need a four wheel drive vehicle with high clearance to make it. Expect 30 to 45 minutes of driving on the dirt road. Here you will find the trailhead for vultee arch. Follow the trail for about 15 minutes until you see the first large gully on your right. take this right. From here on there isn't really a distinct trail. Expect a fair amount of bush whacking and consider bringing a trekking pole and machete. Follow the large gully for a short distance until it is possible to get on top of the ridge to the right. Once you are on top of this ridge follow it until you can cut left onto the forested slope leading up to the base of the wall. follow discontinuous game trails until you are at the base. Hiking from the trail head can take anywhere from 50 to 90 minutes. It is a rather arduous approach but is well worth it. If you do not have a 4 wheel drive vehicle then another option is hiking over sterling pass from highway 89. The sterling pass trail drops into dry creek basin and connects with the vultee arch trail. This would involve at least 3 miles of hiking.
