Description 

Start up the East side of the mudrock spire. There is a step-across to a crack, onto some ledges then to a bolt at a headwall. Mantle up, make the next high clip and go around the North side of the Spire to find a belay at the base of a gully. P2 -
Up the double cracks to a fine 3/4 inch crack to finish at chains. One 60 meter rope will need some stretching to get off (send the Tallest guy down first (maybe use knots)).


Location 

Park at the Bear Mountain trailhead just past Fay canyon (if approaching from Sedona). Hike the trail to the top of the first mesa and break right at a wash very close to the twin towers on your right. You will see pitch two in the shadows up high. Go to the saddle between the two towers and look for a crack on the East side with a loose looking TV sized block at the base.


Protection 

micros on up to 3"
