West Sedona Rock Climbing
West Sedona is a local divide in town, and separated from Sedona proper by the large hill west of the "Y" on 89A.
West Sedona is also the gateway to such classics as Dr. Rubo's Wild Ride 5.9, Mars Attacks 5.9, The Golden Spike 5.11+, and The Red Planet 5.13. These routes, and many more fine lines are spread out across the formations which define the Dry Creek basin, and in the deep canyons that tumble off the rim. It is a stunning landscape.
From the "Y" of 89A and 179, head west on 89A towards Cottonwood. Dry Creek Rd will be several miles down and on the north side of the road.
