Description [Edit]

1 Pitch is a typical dirty Sedona dihedral, takes a lot of finger pieces. Gear belay on top of the limestone band(1"- 3").
2 Pitch climb the crack system to the right of the belay to a fist crack in clean varnished rock. Belay at a small stance below an obvious chimney (1.5"- 4").
3 Pitch climb the fun chimney to the base of the summit block, then finish with a boulder problem onto the summit.
Down climb from the summit to the rappel anchors.

Location [Edit]

The route is located on the south west face of Lily Flower Tower.
From the shoulder traverse left on an exposed ledge system to an obvious dihedral.

Protection [Edit]

3x 0.4" - 0.75"

Locate a large manzanita with slings. Make a 180' rappel to the limestone band. Walk about a 100' south on the limestone band and locate a two bolt anchor. A 120' rappel takes you back to your packs.
