Hello. I am heading to the Grand Canyon and then Zion. Is there an area that has a lot of sport climbs (5.8-10B) in that area. Thank you

I assume you'll be at the North Rim of Grand Canyon, since that's the closest to Zion. Your best bet for concentrated sport climbing, if this is the case, would be the St. George area. Browse around this site and the database on mountainproject.

If you'll be at the South Rim, there's plenty of sport in the Flagstaff, AZ area.

I'm pretty sure that there is no sport climbing in the Grand Canyon itself.

I know there was some sport climbing on the south rim and I believe it is even in a regional book, maybe just the internet. I scouted it and it looked pretty good, not many routes but the quality looked good. It was wayyyy too cold when I was there to break the rope out.

In addition to Mountain Project, there's a guide on drtopo.com to sport climbing around St. George.
