Routes in Western Bouldering Area

Description

Located at Echo Canyon Trailhead and has numerous large boulders. There are many traverses that are clearly marked with chalk, with most problems being easier than V3. Rock quality leaves something to be desired, but it's solid enough to climb on.

Open from Sunrise to Sunset.

Most boulders are in a 'closed' area, but as long as climbers are respectful to it, everything will work out.

There are ~50 notable problems here, which are mostly in the guidebook.

Getting There

Go to Echo Canyon Trailhead (N Echo Canyon Pkwy
Phoenix, AZ 85018). Paved road with parking lot.

Follow the main trail from the parking lot. After 500 feet or so you'll hit a large boulder with pockets. This is just before the Ramada on the right. There is a climbers trail on the left of the boulder.

This trail will lead to nearly all the main boulders, though some boulders are easier to get to by taking the main trail further. There are other boulders past the Ramada on the right and others to the left of the climbers trail.
