Chapel of the Rock, Upper Beach Area Suggest change

Route Finding:
Maybe tricky in Sedona, park on the north side of the road, the last pull out before the gate to the church. From here follow the trail north, following rock buffs and ledges to the first major and obvious drainage. Scurry up this for a ways until the only Limestone band, head left. Work you way on a vague trail that passes between the main rock feature and a short rotten looking spire. Continue around and up the next drainage, a few moves with gain access to the Upper Beach. Looking up at the wall, pickpocket is the large and dominant right facing dihedral on the left side of the drainage. Follow narrow trail to base of the climb.

Description Suggest change

3 bolts protect the thin and loose section of the rock, small gear to bolts to big gear to the top. Fun route, good protection.

The last route to be established in Sedona of 2003.
