Spaceship Rock and The Bowl of Courthouse
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Two unknown climbers (scramblers?) try their hand (and feet) on Spaceship Rock, a sandstone formation east of Courthouse Butte along the Courthouse Butte
Little is known of Spaceship Rock. It's one (of many) of sandstone
formations found south of Sedona in the Big Park/Village of Oak Creek area.
These folks surmounted the rock by taking advantage of a small chute on the
rock's east side, complete with footholds!
In the background, "the bowl" of Courthouse is plainly seen. This is where the standard route (30-foot section of 5.6) leads to the airy summit of Courthouse Butte (5,451').
