On Saturday March 19th Ill be returning with my family from Mesa along I-17 to Utah. We are planning on making a stop along the way to do some sport climbing. I have been trying to find a good place, I'm looking for something close to I-17, a short approach less then 1/2 hour, and with easy climbing 5.7ish it would be great if it had something more like a 5.10 that I could hop on, but it doesn't need it.

I have been thinking maybe the The Son Tower would be a good choice? Thoughts or Suggestions?

Thanks in advance

The Pitl is your best option with plenty of bolted moderates and an easy ten minute approach. It's about a ten minute drive from the interstate. JJ Schlick

A little further from l-17 in Prescott Time Zone Wall. Good granite and a whole wall of moderates. Wouldn't be to far out of the way it's 30-40 mins from I-17. Easy approach and great scenery. walmongr
