Description 

This area is a quality shield of Coconino's finest; perched high in a southwest facing bowl of choss. Long, involved, and obscure approaches and limited routes make this place secluded, once you walk past the jeeps, drones, and tour-ons.

Getting There 

Park at the Submarine Rock parking area. Hike to the east and to the left of two large sandstone bowls. Head past Submarine Rock, jump into the wash heading east, staying close cliff band. Look for the choss, sandbarish ridge heading to the magnificent looking streaked shield of rock with a crack splitting the upper half. There were cairns in wash. Stay in the WASH! At least 1.5 hour approach, much more if you don't have a reputable Vortex Guide.

This is an astonishing route that if found anywhere else would be the "it" route to do...Well maybe just the second pitch, a ridiculous overhanging splitter that seems too good to be true! Pitch 1 (5.11+): Ramble a few feet up through the choss to a pedestal clip a bolt and proceed to do a classic Sedona "approach" pitch. (loose rock, choss, sand) The last 10 -15 feet after passing the last bolt are actually quite fun and thought provo...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
