Hi Nick I have mid week days off, typically Mondays & Tuesdays and would like to get out and do some local cragging with you. If you are staying in Scottsdale the McDowells are very close and offer good granite trad routes. If you wanted to pull some pockets and try some sport climbing Queen Creek is a close and very popular . My favorite new area is a place called Isolation Canyon which is a 2 hr drive from the valley up north of Payson.
I have been climbing for over 30 yrs, started when I was 19 , mid 50's now. Still love it I live in central Phx. Don't have much of a profile on Mountain project but my climbing resume is solid Paul Paonessa
