The southern-most of the 3 crags, there are several nice routes here. The approach is short & easy by Sedona standards, and the climbs are well-equipped. Most climbs are roughly south-facing, and secluded in a small east to west drainage.
From the parking area, cross the road and follow the drainage that heads roughly south from right where the road bends left. Follow this drainage for 10-15 minutes or so until the cliff & spires appear on the left. Hike/scramble/bushwhack up and left to the rock, then contour around the southern face.
