Hi,

I'm looking for some advice. My wife and I are spending time in Flag this weekend and we will be doing a bit of bouldering. I've spent a lot of time at the Draw and want to try something new. The pic's of Kelly make it look really compelling but the descriptions focus on "highballs" and "dirty top outs." I'm fine with both, but my wife would rather circuit V0's and 1's. Which are would be better - Gloria's or Kelly Canyon?

Thanks!

I haven't been, but heard that DWS at East Clear Creek near Winslow is cool.

East Clear Creek is awesome, but I would doubt that there is anyplace there conducive to dws. Not alot of water in AZ. Maybe a little bouldering over the water, and some great roped lines though.
Flag has no shortage of climbing - but please don't tell Colorado and California that.

Some guys from my gym showed me some cool pictures of DWS from East Clear Creek. Here's a picture from this site.



I'd like to go myself and probably will next summer. Looks awesome. With the internet nothings really a secret anymore.
