crux

Description 

I shied away from this tower for a long time after hearing about poor rock quality on the East face but this turned out truly classic. The rock quality is some of the best in Sedona, the moves are super fun, the gear is all there, the views can't be beat, and exposure is incredible!
P1: climb up a few easy ledges to the base of what appears to be a looming chimney(really no chimney moves are required) instead edge out left of a small roof then lieback up a short corner, then stem up to bomber small to big hands crack thru roof(6+ft) -exiting the upper chimney toward the right. 80ft. 5.10a. Belay off gear (many options) and enjoy the view.
P2: climb hand and finger cracks up lower angle rock to 3bolt rap anchor on the HUGE ledge below the final summit block. 50ft. 5.6
Rap to base: 130ft, it may be possible to rap to ledges and downclimb with a 70M.

Location 

SW face, look left of some old BoyScout petroglyphs.

Protection 

double set to #3, 1 #4optional.

It's as good as he says. Great rock, fun moves, not grovely at all. Have your belayer up towards the base of the corner to avoid rope drag. There were not alot of loose rocks to worry about

What a gem you guys snagged! Beta is spot on. I enjoyed having the #4 for right after the crux.

A long sling or 2 used wisely and there's no reason to do this in 2 pitches.
A 70m rope works perfectly for the rappel, no downclimbing needed.
The quicklinks on the rap anchor are the smallest I've ever seen...

While the rock quality isn't amazing, at least the view and the rope drag are.
