Hi all,
I'm posting to find out more info on what the climbing scene is in the Flagstaff area. I'm thinking about heading south (from BC Canada) for a month of climbing mid nov-ish and am wondering what the local rock is like, sport, trad, bigwall, oppertunities for camping near the crags, city life and such. Any advise and info would be greatly appriciated! ps- Looking for climbing partners and ride sharing from Vancouver Island. Shori!

There is no climbing within 200 miles of Flagstaff. No sport, no trad, no bouldering. And even if there was climbing, there wouldn't be any camping near the crags. And even if there was camping, it wouldn't be free.

The city sucks. You can't even find a decent wine bar.

But at least it's warm there in mid-November.

If your are really talking about Flagstaff Arizona there is a ton of climging near by, Jacks Canyon and Sedona both come to mind

Beyond the info you seek that you will find on this site, Flag is a great town to hang and there is at least one good wine bar, The Loft!

If you want more info pm me.

Flag climbers are protective because it is a small town that we would like to keep that way. Go there, be friendly and you will make some friends with some cool climbers and have fun. Tell people you are from BC and you should get some instant respect. I unfortunately live in Phx now, but regularly head back up there to climb. If you would like to meet up for some climbing PM me.

In hopes that you have not yet embarked on your journey...
Flag is a sweet sweet little town that i have recently come to adore. I was there with a few friends last weekend and camped at ashurst lake. short drive to priest draw and the pit [i've actually got a good deal of photos from the trip &the climbing if youd like to see them] In town I must reccommend that you stop at Fratelli's pizza and have some pie and a pint. It was a great weekend. Chilly at night, but perfecto for climbing during the day!Wink

Not to split hairs, but Jacks and Sedona are not "Flagstaff."

Jacks is half an hour out of Winslow, and about 1.5 hours away from Flag. Sedona is about 45 minutes out of Flag.

That said, those areas will be more hospitable than "Flag proper" as the winter sets in. They're at a lower elevation.

Why commit to just flagstaff? drive a couple more hours and you can climb all the great stuff near Phoenix or Tucson.....

We won't bite.... I promise Wink
