Mt. Elden Bouldering has it's own distinct flavor, and most folks either love it or hate it. It's often a powerful, crimpy style, which caters better to quality harder problems than moderates. However, the easy in town access is hard to beat, for that quick after work circuit, or a perfect project.

Well-known as a historic Flagstaff testpiece and as a benchmark for V8. Tip-rending crimps, slick knobs and small footholds lead from the lip of the overhang out the pretty bulge. Cold weather, fresh skin and intuitive footwork will come in handy....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
