About Queen Creek Canyon:

Beautiful desert terrain, located about 45 minutes east of Phoenix. Very diverse area, crag climbing, bouldering and sport routes can all be found in the area around Superior and Devils canyon as well as Queen Creek. Plenty of wide open desert to camp in and numerous locations for climbers to explore. Stop at REI in Tempe and get local climbing guide pamphlets by Marty Karabin or talk to the locals for routes. Oak Flats (part of Queen Creek area) is also the home of the Phoenix Bouldering Contest. Get "Queen Creek" by Marty Karabin at your local climbing store for all the camping, supplies, average temp info and all the beta you can ask for. Only going to a specific area? Pick up his QC area pamphlets at REI for $2
