Description 

This neat mini tower offers easy access to classic Sedona; nice views, varied climbing in an interesting location. Unknown who did the FA of the formation, or their route. Wasted blue slings were found on a tiny bush on top, bolted anchor added thankfully. Warm and protected. Would link nicely with other routes near Slingshot Rock.

Getting There 

Approach as for Slingshot Rock but break right to slickrock where convenient below the tower. Located 100 yards East of Slingshot Rock, the larger of the two towers. Start on right side of South face in large right facing dihedral.
20-30 minutes for the approach.
