Bouldering with a ridiculous backdrop.


Amazing bouldering on perfect white porcelain Limestone. It was at this site in 1540, that Coronado and his band of conquistadors became the first Europeans to ever lay eyes on the largest canyon in the world. It took them four years to hike from Mexico city in search of the legendary 7 sacred cities of gold. Lead by Native Hopi Indians, they camped on the rim for four months trying to reach the river unsuccessfully.

Getting There

The most readily available boulder problem at Moran Point. This route kicks ass for a great photo, as well as being a blast to climb.Start on some edges or sloping side pulls below the finger crack. Climb your way into the crack for some sweet locks and jugs. Great holds lead to an easy top out....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
