DescriptionWinslow, and Hwys 87 and 99 which run south out of town sit on a windswept, high desert plain, with the deep canyons of Chevelon, East Clear Creek, Jack's, and Diablo which cut through the various layers of sandstone and limestone. A seemingly unlikely area for climbing at first glance, these canyons offer up excellent stone, and unique cragging adventures.
The a Winslow Wall needs little introduction at this point. This stunning, old timey area has both gear and sport routes on slabby, to overhanging water polished pockets up 5.13+. A sort of otherworldly crag, please be respectful of this magical place.
Similar to that of The Pit in Flagstaff, Jacks Canyon was one of Norhtern Arizona's first forays into a full blown sport crag in the early/mid 90's. Today, it is a sport refuge for folks who want steep, pocketed stone, and hassle free access.
These days it's seems like a lot of little "show and tell" crags are popping up, though access through the ranch lands still remains somewhat of an enigma at this point.
As Tim Toula once said, "In Winslow they keep their crags underground".
