Be aware: it should be at least 85 degrees in Sedona to climb at the Doctor's Office. It is in a narrow slot canyon, creating a swamp-cooler effect. If it is 90 in Sedona, the DO will be a perfect 75 degrees.
NOTE: PLEASE WAIT A DAY OR TWO TO CLIMB AT THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE AFTER A RAIN!
The area is sandstone, and becomes brittle when wet.

Walking for those Sedona towers is over-rated. A short jaunt to the Dr's Area & RX is certainly worthy and can provide some nice shade.
Heads up about bringing pooches to the crag. The trail is OK but the nature of the base, large blocks and 4th class scrambling is pretty difficult even for the experienced rock hound.
Routes can be a bit sandy.... but that said not much traffic and, well, they are sandstone.

The original hand-drawn topo has been replaced with an up-dated one. Additionally, most routes have sandstone plaques at the base giving the rating of the route by number (not letter (i.e., 11-,11,11+)
Also, bring your Red Rocks Pass or display a golden eagle, access pass, or other NF pass. There is no ticketing, but warnings have been issued!

|As a pharmacist, I would like to thank the developers of this area. The topos are great and the routes look awesome. I can't wait to jump on all routes I can, especially my namesake. And, the America the Beautiful pass is a great deal at only $80 for unlimited entrance to all national parks.|

|Kevin, the line is there to lower stuff out, not to rap on. The cans are there from early developers who stored their equipment in them. They were washed out from their stash spots during the monsoons.|
