Simply put, this canyon has some of the most potential for new routes in all of Sedona! With only a few existing routes, the only crowd you'll find here are vortex goers.
The routes are rarely climbed, so it can be a bit loose and chossy.

Getting There 

Just follow hwy 89 west from Sedona and turn right on Dry Creek road. Drive on the paved road until you see signs for Boynton Canyon and follow the signs.

The trail into the canyon is easy with some rocky parts.
