Rock Climbing Photo: Rapping down after climbing Shantytown Swing(5.6) ...
any recommendations on a quality TR crag with easy approach? TR not mandatory, open to leading up to 5.9 but I'm not traveling with an experienced lead belayer so... That's a limitation.

Would love some beautiful scenery and quality rock. I'm interested in single pitch cracks with easy nearby sport leads for my lady companion.

I'm traveling with a single rack to 3" so splitter cracks are not very doable unless TR'd.

Heading back home to San Diego and Tuesday

I do NOT have a 4 wheel drive vehicle. I drive a hatchback so graded dirt roads are about as adventurous as I can get.

Cheers!

Everything top rope-able, but no sport climbs.

Not far from Grand Canyon. (About an hour from Grand Canyon Village to Williams area and probably about half an hour from Williams area to the Crag.)

I'd also recommend oak creek overlook for toproping. Bring long slings or cordage and use a tree as an anchor. It's recommended to use a jacket or rope bag to pad the tree. The climbing is similar to Paradise Forks, but ledgier and thus easier. It's also a bit less out of the way to get there. Paul Zander
