Description

This neat hidden mini tower offers up classic Sedona mixed bag of climbing; blue collar cracks, odd ball features and a clean, pumpy crux.

Pitch 1 Climb right facing dihedral with hands to fingers then wide lybacking to roof. Plug a wide cam then tip toe past mummified turd rock to large ledge. Likely permanently sandy but cool. 5.10 80 feet

Pitch 2 Hike through the Sedona VIP portal feature. 1st class 3rd class climbing.

Pitch 3 Climb hands up the clean swerving crack, as the angle steepens downshift and box up to the roof slot crux. Closet dance to a stance, pass a nice finger crack bit and move left near the summit. Burly and fun! 5.11+ 105 feet.

There is an alternate 1st pitch on the North side of the tower that has 3 bolts and is 5.10. It goes straight to the start of the 3rd pitch and was used to get to the portal to clean the tons of loose rock off the 1st pitch. Ok, but the other way is cooler!

Location

Start on the obvious right facing corner on the right side of the South face.
Rap from summit back to belay with 70m then to ground, hike back around to base.
