A friend of mine and I just arrived in Phoenix with plans to spend the week exploring and climbing, but the forecast for most of the Southwestern United States is looking like rain all week. Does anyone have any suggestions for places to climb that has either an OK forecast or sheltered climbing? We're open to some driving so it doesn't necessarily have to be near Phoenix.
Next three days may be bad but you will have better weather afterwards. If you don't want to squat under a rock in Flagstaff, head to the areas near Phoenix. The McDowells, Pinnacle Peak are just north of Scottsdale and will provide good rock and climbing.
Other areas near Phx may be fine then too. What are you looking for? What kind of climbing/grades?
Thanks for the replies. We ended up camping at Molino Basin near Mt. Lemmon. The weather turned out OK enough to climb during the beginning of the week. There's so much to explore up there. I'm looking forward to getting back to that area sometime soon.
