Hey all,

Anyone in the Sedona area this week? Curious about weather conditions and how much snow (if any) there is...plan is to head up later this week to climb, just want to be sure that there won't be too much seepage from snow accumulation. Any info would be great appreciated!

Also, any recommendations on sunny south facing routes that are pleasant to climb this time of year?

Thanks

Hey Drew,
Sedona is starting soak up the sun during this warming trend, highs in the 50s this weekend. There is some snow on the shady north side of washes and features as far south as Courthouse Butte. Most rock that sees the sun is dry and climbable. I would avoid the frigid temps of routes in the shade.

As for Sunny routes:
Dr. Rubos
Coyote Tower
Vortex in a Can
The Prosecutor
Sedona Scenic Cruise (after 11am-ish)
...all make for fun in the sun!
