The classic route on this nifty little spire is located on the uphill side of the formation. Step off the ledge and straight into the business. Flared hands/hands takes you into the handcrack crux in the limestone band. After the limestone, keep cranking up into the pod rest, take a few moments and launch into and over the roof bulge on great hands. A few moves over manky rock and you'll be summit bound. The lower summit has a double-bolt anchor, but that's it for pro as you can either step in a sling or onto your partner's shoulders to gain the true summit. Belly slide back down to the lower summit once you've satiated your thirst for summit views....
From the parking area hike about 30 minutes on the Brins Mesa trail keeping an eye out for the pixie-stick-looking spire on your right. Once you've located the spire from the trail, draw about even with it and then do the Sedona shuffle up a drainage and then slickrock, taking the path of least manzanita to the base.
