Description

Middle Elden is the large canyon dissecting Mount Elden running North/South - easily visible from town. It can be a nice winter oasis with quick snow melt and plenty of sun. It is also rather enjoyable in the Spring and Fall as the canyon walls offer shade, especially the west side of the canyon in the late afternoon. I would suggest climbing elsewhere when Flagstaff is above 70 degrees. This area features a lot of technical climbing and is a great place to train and toughen up your skin. Middle Elden does have quite a few bad landings, so bring lots of pads and some friends. If anyone has better information on names or FA 's please let me know.  Also, plenty of potential exists for new lines especially if you are willing to work for it!

Getting There
