More sandstone up by Super Crack Tower. November 2...

Description 

This area is located just northwest of Midgley Bridge, up on a prominent step of sandstone. From the parking area at Midgley Bridge, you will be able to see Steamboat Rock prominently, and the tops of Princess and Tisha Spire formations as well.


Getting There 

From the Midgley Bridge parking area, take the Wilson Canyon Trail to the Jim Thompson Trail turnoff, then after about five minutes on the JTT, turn uphill and gain the ridge above that is followed to Steamboat and access to Princess and Tisha.

P1: 5.9 Hands to fists up cornerP2: 5.11/12 One of the best pitches I've been on in Sedona, Amazing. Splitter! First half probably 5.10 to overhanging fingers through two bolts to anchors on ledge, 5.11/12? Need some input on the grade! Spectacular! Feels like Annunkai at Indian Creek but steeper! (and unfortunately shorter) Possible to rap from here. (Very very cool 98% free hanging rap) These two pitches are definitely worth the hike!P3: 5.11+/12- FFA Jones/Bloom...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
