Coyote Tower, 5.10c
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
2nd Pitch- 110’- 5.10c/ This is one of the better crack/trad pitches in all of Sedona. Move the belay up and left to the base of the western face of the tower (the first pitch really is not on the tower proper) with an obvious corner/crack system pulling a small roof at the top. There was at least one bolt on this pitch, but it all protects well with gear. The first 80% of the dihedral involves neat movement in the 5.9+-5.10- range with good rests. The crux (5.10+) is definitely much more physical near the top where you overhang just a bit as you mantle several meters up the tight hands-fingers crack to the top of the corner and a comfortable fixed belay.
