Hey climbers,
Ill be staying at a place in Sedona with my parents and they want to see me climb. Are there many areas that have little approaches with multiple routes? I don't really care if its trad or sport. I have a solid climbing partner going with me and we are both in the 5.11 range. Also, we do have a pretty big and lifted jeep that can take us to some spots if that helps shorten the approach for my parents. Let me know what you think and maybe tell me a little about jakes creek. Thanks for the help!!!!

doesn't get any better that the waterfall. It is a magical place that you can chase sun or shade at. If you want good multi-pitch, check out arch enemy, or trundler's club. For trundlers club, 4x4 on the broken arrow trail to chicken point and hen its a 10-15 min approach straight up the hill. That is prob the best bet for your parents. They can even just chill and watch you from the point with all the pink jeep tourists

Most folks can easily walk up to Dr Rubo's and it is sunny and a nice tower.

Sport climbing at the Planetarium is a short walk with a bit of a scramble.

The waterfall is great. If your parents are ready for a 45 minute uphill walk along boulders then you can't beat the rock.

IDK about jeep trails, but if you want a short approach for the parents then The Planetarium, as Manny said, is about as short & easy as an approach gets in Sedona. Plus if you climb one of the steep routes in the cave you can take a few gigantic whippers for them.

The mountainproject.com/v/red-liza... is one of those .12- sport routes that is a tricky onsight, and an easy redpoint comparatively do to good rests below cruxes. Anyway it's got a short approach off the cemetery. Have fun. It's really the only thing there though....

Is there still good climbing in Sedona during this time of year? I understand it is cold but how about the climbing conditions?

This is a perfect time of year in Sedona. It is often too warm to climb at certain crags, like the Planetarium. Just stay away from the north faces. They are shady, cool and sometimes wet.

I've had great luck climbing in the sun in January, and I'm a baby in the cold. Just avoid shady routes & areas. Good luck!
