Hello:

I am looking for a route in Sedona that ends somewhere accessible by short hike or drive. Trying to plan a very small wedding in Sedona where the bride & groom could top out and meet up with officiant & witnesses, who are not climbing. Could be a hard route, could be sport or trad. Hopefully multi pitch. They are a capable couple. Anything come to mind?

Lots of stuff at the Overlooks tops out a few feet from the parking lot. I don't know of anything directly in Sedona. Maybe some obscure route along Schnebly Hill Rd.

Oski would be good. Good trail to the top.

I heard Queen Vic is a walk off.

Queen Vic isn't a walk off. Also there's only room for about half a dozen people on the summit.

I second Oski and the Overlook. Can't think of anything else with that requirement.

Bell Rock.

Thats interesting. The couple will climb to the top of Bell Rock while the wedding party will walk to the top of it?

I stand corrected Tamara.

Thanks for the ideas everyone... keep 'em comin! I think Oski would have been perfect but the hike is too long for the family. I know we're asking for a lot here! It may just turn into a hike.

I second Overlook and Bell Rock as good options depending on what your looking for. Overlook is 1 min flat walk to cliff top. Bell Rock requires roping up for the top 80 feet, but the notch below would be an amzing place for a small wedding, but does require some short 3rd class type scrambling to get to.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
