Description

Mt. Sanitas is another local bouldering area just north of Flagstaff. It is a cool, chill place to boulder and has many easy to moderate problems - which makes it a good place to go when you are feeling like taking it easy and resting the fingers (the rock is also easier on the hands than Flagstaff). It's also a good place to take beginners and most of the landings are great. The only con is that one must hike up a grueling six degree slope for approximately five minutes to get to the rock. Enjoy!

Getting There

From Boulder: take Broadway up to Mapleton St. which is a couple blocks north of Pearl Street. Go on Mapleton towards the hills for a few blocks until you see a pavilion on the right hand side of the road - park in the spaces just past it. Get on that trail and stay to the left as it goes up quickly to the nice sandstone boulders.
