Hi,

I am planning a trip to arizona for next year in April. Enthousiastic climber as I am I would love to go rockclimbing in arizona. Can anyone tell me how the routes are bolted/secured, I mean: is it the englisch way (no bolts) or the french way (bolt distance like 1 or 1,5 meters)...

I was at Mt. Lemmon lat winter and found the sport routes well bolted for the most part. Some of the older classics were a bit ballzy, but where are they not.

Cochise Stronghold is a great place too. A bit more on the adventurous side in all respects.

Mt. Lemmon has both bolted routes and those that are protected with gear. Within an hour of Tucson, you can find almost any type of climbing there is.

Sjannett,

I recently moved to Tucson, and I go to Mt Lemmon frequently. Send me an email before you come to town and I'd be glad to take you climbing.

AZ has many routes with safely spaced bolts. Most routes are bolted well, Jack's has closely spaced bolts, it would be perfect in spring. The Pit in Flagstaff is always good although more suited to 5.10/11 climbs. Where and how long would you be here?

Hanging on in quiet desperation, now that you mention it.
