Rock Climbing Photo: the traverse.

The Traverse V7-8 7B  AZ : Northern Arizona : ... : Arkansas & Traverse Wall
This is one of the finest traverses in Flagstaff. Start sitting at a big pinch and make a few powerful pulls out the short roof. Head due right using many slopers, poor footholds, and judicious heelhooks to reach good pockets about halfway across the wall. Easier moves on deep pockets end at a jug just left of the tree (you better not drop off early!) Match this hold and call it good, or top out if you don't mind dirt and crumbly holds....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

CONDITION REPORT 
Road Closure Reminder:
The final road to Kelly Canyon is officially closed and should no longer be used! The Forest Service has made it clear that users should no longer be driving all the way to the old trailhead. Giant boulders now guard the road but incompetent users have begun to drive around this closure. Please respect this closure and DO NOT drive off road to avoid the road closure. DONT BE LAZY, PARK AT THE ROAD CLOSURE!! This will effect our overall access to this amazing area. The extra hike only takes a few minutes!
