Flagstaff is the epicenter of Northern Arizona climbing, and there are dozens of crags within an hours drive.
In the backyard, however, we have Mt. Elden which is now showcasing a very diverse collection of sport crags, as well as, some more traditional venues. The San Francisco Peaks are just a hop and skip down the road, and open up a number of climbing opportunities.
The Pit, just south of town on Lake Mary Rd is an infamous sport crag, and local outdoor gym.
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.

The real business comes right off the ledge, be sure to find the tricky #1 camalot before making the moves to the bolt, steep balancey climbing on big holds through one bolt, pulling up to a th...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
