West Twin Butte

Where: Sedona, Arizona
When: April 2007
Partners: DB
Route: East Ridge (Class 3)

After getting to the Wilson Mountain trailhead and finding the trail closed, we wandered over to Twin Buttes, virtually beta-less, and decided to explore a way up the easier west butte. Stumbling across a trail, DB and I soon found out way to the saddle between the two buttes. Heading up and right, we struck a steep and exposed, loose 3rd class wall that DB and I felt uncomfortable putting her on unroped. She stayed behind while I soloed up and wandered to the summit. She was disappointed to wait below, but safer that way.
