Approaches depend on the route you're climbing. For Crooked Arrow Spire and the Supernatural area, follow the high-clearance dirt road into Sister Superior (departs from River Road just north of the road into Castle Valley near a bridge). Stop before reaching Sister Superior near a huge, obvious boulder on the south side of the road. Follow a seldom-travelled trail directly past this boulder and up a ridge towards the north face of the mesa. Allow an hour for the slog. Other areas (Ascended Yoga Masters, etc) are approached differently.
