Another great Sedona spire odyssey.

Pitch one: Start on western side of spire at the base of a chimney. Cross the crunchy start pass a bolt and crawl into chimney. Work your way through the limestone band to a two bolt belay. 5.8

Move belay around the corner to the south side of tower, A belay is not a bad idea!

Pitch two: Trend left from belay up some funky Sedona finger pods to a nice slab with three bolts. Two bolt belay. 5.10

Rappel of eastern side into notch.


Single rack to 4. Alpine draws. Single rope.

Exciting climb to a cool summit. Ample face holds make the chimney section easier than it appears. First sequence of moves off the belay on second pitch are stout for 5.10-, but well protected with bolts.
