Description [Suggest Change]

Turkey Tanks is a small basalt canyon that quickly appears and disappears out in the cinder lands east of Flagstaff. It is technically part of the greater San Francisco Wash, but has a very different and shorter approach.

Known for it's pocketed (and polished)holds, this compact area is a great place to unwind on a variety of mostly moderate problems. From overhanging face routes, to steep highball cracks, this little canyon has it covered. And is also one of the first places in Flagstaff to dry up after rain or snow.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

From Townsend/Winona Road head north on Leupp Road for 2.8 miles to a dirt road on the East (right)side of the hwy. Take this road for another 1.7 miles as it skirts the small hill to your right. Stay on the main road, and eventually you will pass under some electric lines, just before the road terminates. Park, and hike the trail down to the crag.
