Description 

Though Sedona doesn't have the quantity of high quality bouldering that Flagstaff has, areas like The Anvil Boulders, and Grasshopper Point offer up unique problems on steel grey, featured sandstone, near the banks of Oak Creek. So whether you are looking for warm stone in cold conditions, or a little summertime creek bouldering, you are sure to find something that will make your palms sweat.

And there is still a lot of "backcountry" exploring to do. One can still stumble upon laser cut arêtes, and splitter crack problems that have maybe seen an ascent, maybe not. The many canyons in Sedona may still yield some concentrated areas with some work.
