Does anybody have any ideas of routes to take a complete beginner on (and they might have fun)?

this has nothing to do with the topic, I just think it's cool!

Something in the pit "le petit verdon" might be suitable, or if you can make it down to phoenix, the monk on camelback, or a more adventurous weevers needle ascent would be perfect for a beginner. also now ould be the best time of year to do weavers out in the superstitions (just west of phoenix)

Jumping across the mace gap with a PBR

Pumphouse wash, jacks canyon, the pit, the peaks, and a ton more if you have trad gear.

@stropsa The monk in camelback was my favorite to take beginners on. But Camelback is closed right now. They're renovating the parking lot.

Slap/Tickle

Your question may be a bit vague (i.e., do you want single pitch, multi-pitch, sport, trad?). And, does driving distance influence your decision?

let me try to be more specific, things in the sedona/flag area which are sooooo easy that a healthy human with 0 climbing experience would probably make it. 2 pitches could be ok. 1 maybe better. I'm thinking of Tisha, the easy route. Anyone done it? Thx for all the ideas. I realize punphouse is for summer, just curious what folks are talking about

For a complete beginner (I'm assuming sport?) I would go to the pit. If your looking to climb in the next few weeks/month here that would be your best beginner bet. Jacks is fairly close and is like an outdoor gym, a good spot if your willing to make the 1 and half hour drive.
For some beginner trad, check out queen Vic's and paradise sporks ( located down the canyon from the pit!) depending on snow...
Have fun!!

JMo gots it! Queen Vic would be great and what an awesome summit for a complete beginner. You will get them hooked for sure :)

I would also through in Streaker spire. 5.7, 2ish pitches (if you don't count the roped 4th class traverse) and a great summit. Approach is pretty mellow as well. Also did anybody recommend the overlook yet? Short approach, tons of great moderates and very topropable.

and the consensus is..... Queen Victoria! thx
