Me and four buddies are flying into Phoenix and driving to Red Rocks the first week in April. We plan on spending three days climbing and driving in Arizona on our way to Red Rocks. Any suggestions on areas or routes to climb along the way? Preferably multi-pitch trad routes. Also, any suggestions on a good guide book for the area in between Phoenix and Red Rocks? Joshua B

Vegas isn't that far.....maybe 5.5 hours if you drive at a leisurely pace. You could maybe say Sedona is "on the way" but, in all honesty, Sedona isn't really any closer to Vegas than Phoenix. It is a worth-while diversion, I suppose, but I would suggest just going straight to Vegas if you don't have a ton of extra time to blow. It is already starting to get hot here, anyhow........

I would say if you are going to spend the time and want to climb in AZ on your way to red rocks, take the 17 up to flag and head over to red rocks. You can spend a day doing the mace and other longer routes. Then go up to flag and spend a day craggin at paradise forks. Once done with that, head straight to Vegas because there is nothing else.

I like that suggestion. Go north to Sedona then Flagstaff and keep going to Vegas. Or spend a second day in Isolation Canyon. Then head to Paradise Forks for hard cracks.

From Paradise Forks, just keep heading west to Vegas.
