Here's a blast from the past- on the summit of...


1 Pitch is a typical dirty Sedona dihedral, takes a lot of finger pieces. Gear belay on top of the limestone band(1"- 3").
2 Pitch climb the crack system to the right of the belay to a fist crack in clean varnished rock. Belay at a small stance below an obvious chimney (1.5"- 4").
3 Pitch climb the fun chimney to the base of the summit block, then finish with a boulder problem onto the summit.
Down climb from the summit to the rappel anchors.


The route is located on the south west face of Lily Flower Tower.
From the shoulder traverse left on an exposed ledge system to an obvious dihedral.


3x 0.4" - 0.75"
2x 1"-3"
2-3x 4"
1x 5"

Locate a large manzanita with slings. Make a 180' rappel to the limestone band. Walk about a 100' south on the limestone band and locate a two bolt anchor. A 120' rappel takes you back to your packs.
