Looking to climb this summer with my cousins in the Scottsdale area. Would like some easy to moderate routes since some of them are beginners. Where's the best place to climb for us newbies? Looking for a place that has nice views and an easy set up. Also, anywhere we can rent equipment? Thanks in advance

I have some family on my wife's side in Scottsdale.  When i went out there to visit a few years ago I took them climbing at Sven Slab in the McDowells, I think there's 3 moderates right next to each other, and one is a mild sport lead and you can setup all 3.  I can't help you on renting though, i brought everything.

We did this climb and use it to setup a few TR's

Look at the Arizona Hiking Shack for gear rental. Not sure they do ropes, but I'm confident you can get shoes and harnesses from them.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
