Phoenix/Tempe

I landed a job and will be moving to the Phoenix/Tempe area in January.

I know we have a few people in Flag but anyone further South?

I need to pick some brains.

PM me - would be happy to chat on a phone call and give you the lay of the land perspective from a quasi-retired climber who has been everywhere in the state. Suggest you join the Facebook group Phoenix Climbing Scene. Fairly active. Actually a variety of folks who have posted on b.com at sometime in the history of the forum. Focus is the best bouldering gym in the valley but may not be convenient depending on where you end up living. The greater phx area is huge. Some outdoor "bouldering" in town - s. mtn is passable for desperate junkies , various choss strewn around - beardsley boulders (sweet effing xmas baby jesu), camelback (lol, packed mud), Icecapades / ice castles (rofl - have been shot at there), Mcdowells (better known for slab trad climbing but plenty of granite, no good bouldering concentration but a helluva hiking workout) Some stuff out toward granite mtn. Oak flats, sharp as shit volcanic tuft, soon to be a giant copper mine is to the east 60-100 mins, again depending on where you live. Superstitions have seen some development in recent years, sharp, bee (double entendre intended) prepared to hike. Prescott (very good, imo) granite and Sedona sandstone (good) to the north.

Enjoy!

So, looking for housing now. Hotel living sucks teh ballzsacks.

I think I've found a place that is almost walking distance to South Mountain. I'll find out a bit more later today.

Will definitely be looking for more climbing information soonish once we get more settled.

Oh yeah, I also made the n00b move of packing all my climbing shit in the pod so I won't have it until I find a house and have the pods delivered. Fun times. sadface.jpg

Dab.

Or a brilliant move to go buy new shoes and that sweet Organic pad and chalk bag combo you always wanted.

Nopers. Just got the house on Saturday and it's got some problems so been dealing with that. Might go for a hike around South Mountain this weekend but for the most part it's going to be unpacking boringness.
