Getting onto the good stuff. The crux is the roof ...
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.
Flagstaff sits at the intersection of interstates 17 and 40, in North Central Arizona.

Lucky Old Sun is a deceptive line... It's steeper than it looks, harder than it looks, and better than it looks. And it's a good looking line.Start as for the Scythe, up the rampy slab to the high first bolt. Throw a runner on the first bolt and move up to the second bolt. Start moving up and right past a good sidepull, a 1 foot tall finger crack, and up to a good jug. Keep moving up and right on bulging terrain with good holds. Rest up below the roof, because the crux awaits just above you. ...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
