Description 

Lots of potential for bolted and trad routes. Chris Tatum and Jerimiah Gentry put up several routes here.

Getting There 

Obvious canyon seen from town on eastern side of Elden. There are any number of access points to get to the Middle Elden. Basically hike along established trails up into the canyon. Many boulder problems in the lower section as you get higher up look for bolted lines on free standing pillars as you get higher in the canyon. Multiple routes and potential on upper tier as well.

Climbing Season

For the Mt. Elden area.

Take precautions to place this gear correctly... From stance, transfer into and underneath the cruxy headwall. Move through the steep and technical boulder problem to a leaning stance and eventually into the mantle. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
