Description

Winslow is a dusty little desert town known for its high winds and inclusion in the Eagles song , Take it Easy, which includes the line, “standing on a corner in Winslow Arizona, such a fine site to see, it’s a girl my lord in a flatbed Ford, slowing down to take a look at me.” Highway’s 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 cutting 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 Winslow Wall needs little introduction at this point. This stunning area has both trad and sport routes on slabby, to overhanging faces. Routes range in difficulty from 5.9 to 5.14+. The Winslow Wall is sort of otherworldly. 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, hassle free access, and predictable conditions.

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".
