Description

Flagstaff is blessed with abundant, high quality bouldering on several different types of stone. With almost every style available from monstrous pocketed limestone roofs, the technical granite like crimps of our local dacite, to the slippery slopey local "fontesque" sandstone, you are sure to find something that tickles your trigger.

These areas are right in town, or within 20-30 minute drive and approach time.
