Northeast aspect, Lookout Tower.


Classic 120-foot spire standing over Fay Canyon on the east side. Aptly named, with a fantastic vantage across Sedona. Very unique rock layers, even for Schnebly.

Getting There 

Park at Fay Canyon trailhead. Follow the trail for 5-10 minutes, then branch right on a climber's trail that threads its way due north through the cliff bands. Arrive at the bottom of the south face in 30 minutes.
