Have to head to PHX for a few days. Anyone know if the Atlantis area would be miserable to climb this week? The weather is supposed to be 100 but I thought that area was shaded... Input would be much appreciated! Thanks CarFar

You can definitely climb there this time of year, just stay in the shade. Have fun! RyanJames

Atlantis is usually shaded throughout the day. If you get up there in the afternoon, the east-facing walls of Upper Devils canyon are another great, shaded option. We climbed out there on Saturday near the throne / Pancake house and the temps were perfect. Albeit short, it's a warm hike out! Ben Watson
