The Anvil Boulders make up one of the best bouldering sites in all of Sedona. A short approach and bomber sandstone makes the problems fun.
The Anvil Rock area is located at the north end of Sedona off Highway 89A. Park at the first pullout on the west side of the highway after leaving town. From here, cross the road, jump the barrier and scramble down the steep slope below. Cross Oak Creek at the lowest looking spot then walk east for about three minutes to the boulders. The Anvil Rock sport climbs are located on the cliff band 3 minutes uphill from the boulders.
