Boynton Canyon Rock Climbing
Stellar view of Boynton Canyon from the top of Sun...
Simply put, this canyon has some of the highest potential for new routes in all of Sedona! With only a few existing routes, the only crowd you'll find here are vortex goers.
The routes are rarely climbed, so it can be a bit loose and chossy.
Boynton Canyon is accessed from the Boynton Canyon trailhead.
From highway 89A in West Sedona, turn north onto Dry Creek Road. Follow this road as it becomes Boynton Pass Road. At the first 3-way intersection, take a left to continue on Boynton Pass Road. At the second 3-way intersection, take a right onto Boynton Canyon Road. After a few hundred yards, the parking area will present itself on the right.
The trail into the canyon is easy with some rocky parts.
