Welcome to Arizona!
Arizona is purported to have more exposed rock than any other state in the US. The bad news is that it isn't ALL climbable. The good news is that tons of it is great for pulling on! Granite, qaurtzite, dacite, basalt, limestone, sandstone, gneiss, monzonite, welded tuff, and a thousand other kinds of stone to pull down on.
From the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff and Paradise Forks in the north, to the crags of Granite Mountain, the Superstitions, and Queen Creek, and finally south to Mount Lemmon and Cochise Stronghold, we have it all! Cracks of all sizes, wide, thin, edges, pockets, jugs, sport, trad, bouldering, big walls, no approach, big hike...whatever you're psyched about! The one thing we're a little short on in most areas is crowds, but that's a good thing.
We also have the best year 'round climbing possibilities in the country with crags at just about every elevation imaginable. Between that and the large percentage of sunny days, there ain't a whole lot more you could ask for!

Footloose 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b AZ
: Central Arizona
: Saguaro Lake
Great route! Route follows an obvious and classic crack to a ledge about 50 feet up. Sustained 5.6 climbing, classic location - don't miss this route on your day of Saguaro Lake boat-climbing. We've already removed the loose stuff. Descent: Jump! (Make sure you have some experience jumping into deep water from heights and of course make sure that there's no one and no boats directly below you!) There's also a rest-ledge about 25ft up where you can bail out with less of a jump if it's getting too...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
