I've created a Facebook Page to use as a means of giving local rock climbers updates on rock climbing in the McDowell Mountains of Scottsdale. You can locate it here:
For the past 10 years I've been involved in trying to secure permanent rock climbing access in the McDowell Mountains of Scottsdale, Arizona. Happily that goal has been accomplished. Given climbers' adherence to the policies and procedures established by the City for the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, we will be able to keep all of the historic rock climbing.
As part of the effort, I've been inventorying the lesser known crags. Generally these crags are either not in any of the guidebooks or have somewhat out of date descriptions in those guidebooks. Indeed, as I emailed earlier this month, the road and trail head access is somewhat of a moving target.
I wanted this page to be a mechanism whereby I could share basic route and climbing information about those lesser known crags in the McDowells.
