Description Suggest change

Big tall Coconino buttress at the back of Fay Canyon. Originally explored by Dave Spies and John Burcham (separately), the buttress now hosts a fine variety of the neo-classic adventures.

Getting There Suggest change

At the tree marking the end of the Fay Canyon trail, take the right fork. At the next significant split in the wash, take the left fork. Hike all the way to the back of this canyon, sticking to the wash the entire way. Seriously, don't get tempted to leave the wash for more than 20 feet at a time. The wash eventually turn into a slickrock bowl, where you'll head left on an obvious steep and loose trail to the base of the routes.
