Streaker Spire summit panorama


When located at the parking lot near the Chapel of the Holy Cross, if you look to the east and a bit south, you will see a ridgeline with several prominent spires. Streaker is the outside or southernmost spire in this line of formations.

Getting There 

The approach is pretty mellow for the most part, just cross-country - via the Chapel Trail - from the church parking lot (might be tough to get a spot these days) to gain a gully leading up to the ridgeline just down and north (left) of Streaker. Some sandstone slab paddling is required to get up there. Watch out for the occasional mountain biker on this trail, but odds are they'll be out somewhere riding the other, much-better, Sedona bike trails rather than this rocky nasty one.

Streaker Spire is a fun mostly easy spire for Sedona and a really cool summit view for your trouble. Start from pine tree as described below. For some reason, I remember the route as three pitches, but think the safest way to do it is as described here:P1) Traverse the limestone band, sometimes up, sometimes below (whatever's easiest!) to get out to a nice flat bivy-style ledge on right end of the north face. There used to be one bolt here and a small tree.P2) Continue out on the limestone band,...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona

Go with tradition and leave your clothes behind for this ascent, it's always fun to whoop up the entertainment factor for the Pink Jeep tours and Chapel visitors!
