View from the trail, there's a reason it's...

Description 

Good little 2 pitch route in morning/early afternoon sun on the east end of North Mesa just before the end of the hiker's trail to the saddle.

P.1: Up obvious bolt line to fingers and stemming. Continuous 5.10. Go left to anchor when it steepens, widens, and turns poorer rock quality.

P.2: Up the wide, easier corner with huecos and intermittent cracks to top of tower.

Location 

At the top of the tourist trail head right and get up on the limestone band. Traverse right to start of obvious corner at bolt line.

2 raps with 1 60m rope.

This route is on the opposite side of the tower from The Dong, an old 5.11 gruntfest

Protection 

Nuts, doubles of small to hand-size cams. Three #3 Camalots, two #4s, and one #5. 4 or 5 draws and a few extendable runners.

Actually starts 30' from trail for lazy bums near small tree. First pitch is wack mud slabbing with whatever gear, look for a bolt low on the pitch. Possible to link P2&P3 in long corner since gear is different for both pitches. I thought P3 was awesome, huecos in a crack on good rock! This might be the most conspicuous route in Sedona? Rap 3x with a single 70m.
