Need to get out of Portland Oregon for a few days. Our dog passed away and we are flying down to Phoenix and driving up through Sedona to the Grand Canyon and then back before flying home.

Not really a climbing trip but might be interested in some easier bouldering during the trip.
Anyone in Sedona area have a pad to borrow or will be our climbing between the 28th and 28th next week?

Thanks

You might want to check out Prescott too. Watson Lake, and Groom Creek in both have great bouldering on good granite. Lots of moderates, though Groom Creek can get snowed in during the winter months.

there is some pretty fun bouldering in Flagstaff, just north of Sedona. An area called Priest Draw is worth checking out.

What days will you be there? I got a pad and I'm passing through Sedona in the coming week and plan on bouldering, would be down for a buddy!

3-5" of snow in downtown Sedona this AM. Let the choss dry and find some mud in the sun. Good luck!

Yeah we hiked Cathedral Rock today and noticed the rock pretty wet. Hoping another dry day could help. Probably just going to hit the Anvil boulders.

I'll be around Sedona for the rest of this week before heading out to Joshua Tree. Looking for bouldering or just fun around town! Anyone wanna hang? :)

River was too high to cross for the anvil boulders

You could check out the sunny side of the Grasshopper boulders. West from the Grasshopper parking lot on North side of Oak Creek. Also the BreezeBlocks if you have a moderate high clearance for Schnebly Rd.

Consider checking out Jerome. It's a small town perched on the side of a mountain on the way north to the GC. Old mining town and is a pretty unique and interesting place. There's the old mine site which is like an outdoor museum around the bend from the gentrified area. Look it up. For days not bouldering or hiking it's a great break where you get a nice meal and a beer or glass of wine.

Heading to anvil boulders down the Huckaby trail in a bit before leaving town

Ahh did you make it to the anvils? I was wondering how it would be up there during this time, especially the river!
