Description

The Anvil Boulders make up one of the best bouldering sites in all of Sedona. A short approach and bomber sandstone makes the problems fun.

Getting There

The Anvil Rock area is located at the north end of Sedona off Highway 89A. Park at the first pullout on the west side of the highway after leaving town. From here, cross the road, jump the barrier and scramble down the steep slope below. Cross Oak Creek at the lowest looking spot then walk east for about three minutes to the boulders. The Anvil Rock sport climbs are located on the cliff band 3 minutes uphill from the boulders.

Or...

Approach info from Schnebly Hill Rd.:
Park at the parking area for the Huckaby and Marg's Draw trails. Follow the Huckaby trail through the river bed. Continue up the hill until there's a dead tree lying across a (non)trail at a right hairpin turn in the Huckaby trail. Walk around the dead tree and follow this (non)trail around the hill. Continue picking your way around and a bit uphill to reach the other side of the hill and find a trail leading through bushes and over a barb-wire fence. This leads down to the dike, upon which the trail to the boulders is easily followed. Takes about 25 min.
