I've got an intense urge to take on a bolted sport route that hangs over water.

you know. rock above you, water below you, wind on your back, lots of exposure.

does anyone know of any in Arizona?

The Virgin River Gorge is the shangri la you seek.
Miles of limestone overlooking the pristine serenity of the Virgin river and a small meager pathway.

Jacks Canyon once a year if there is a big snow melt in the spring.

And this year, there will be.

Except the climbs become inaccessible and you're climbing over what looks like yerba mate.

when I was at Queen Creek over winter break there were a couple bolted lines above one of the pools. It's not a huge body of water but there is a waterfall coming down right next to the climbs as well. I thought that was cool.

Stellar rock and will make you winder why you ever went to Jacks. flagstaff locals will give you the beta.

That water is coooooooooooooold.

That steep short route right over the dam (?) is neat though. I'd go back to it when things dry out.
