Description 

Flagstaff is the epicenter of Northern Arizona climbing, and there are dozens of crags within an hours drive. In the backyard we have Mt. Elden which is now showcasing a very diverse collection of sport crags, as well as, some more traditional venues. The Pit, just south of town on Lake Mary Rd is an infamous sport crag, and local outdoor gym. The San Fran Peaks are just a hop and skip down the road, and open up a number of climbing opportunities. South of town on 89A you will come across The Overlook, which is a classic moderate traditional crag favored by the local crack addicts for full days, or after work affairs. On top of that there are bouldering areas spread all across town, and the city limits. Whether you are here for a week or a lifetime you're lucky either way.


Getting There 

Flagstaff sits at the intersection of interstates 17 and 40, in North Central Arizona.

Mulligan Stew 5.11- 6c 22 VIII+ E3 5c  AZ : Northern Arizona : ... : Hobo Jungle
A tasty mix of steep face and an exposed arete. Begin with an intermittent crack steepening to a short and sweet crux sequence with pockets, edges, and jugs! Work onto the arete at the horn and follow exposed moderate ground to the anchors on an airy perch! It can be tricky to clean your draws and works best to clean them by following the route, otherwise, a fixed biner may be in place at the last bolt to use as directional to clean....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
