Description [Suggest Change]

Mt. Elden Bouldering has it's own distinct flavor and has been testing Flagstaff’s best for generations. It's often a powerful, crimpy style which caters to quality hard problems more than moderates. However, the easy in town access is hard to beat for that quick after work circuit, or a hassle free project. These areas are spread out across the mountain, with Gloria’s having the highest concentration of problems.
