Description 

This is the alluring thin spire at the end of the wash between Oak Creek and Big Country Spires. The route is on the obvious crack on the south face. It is hard, scary and amazing. A old school Sedona anti-gem.

Getting There 

Park at Jack's Canyon trailhead and approach as for Oak Creek Spire. After about 30 minutes, you will cross a wash that is west of Oak Creek Spire. Go up the wash for 30 minutes, then exit the wash and bushwack through sharp plants to the south side of Beeflord, then go around the back and an exposed scramble to the notch.

Climbing Season

For the Village of Oak Creek area.

However, marginal rock and gear quality is not up to the aesthetic standard of this fine looking spire. First ascent described it as a Bad Acid Trip. From the notch, unprotected traverse to equalizable bolts and belay. Pitch 1 Head up to the very thin crack and chimney into the do not fall zone.
