Weekend Rock Arizona: Trad and Sport Routes from 5.0 to 5.10 a
Weekend Rock Arizona: Trad and Sport Routes from 5.0 to 5.10 a
by Lon Abbott
Paperback from Mountaineers Books
ISBN: 089886965X

For climbers who want to make the most of their time on Arizona rock--after work or on a weekend trip

· More than 230 trad and sport climbs from 5.0 to 5.10a
· Destination chart lists climbing season, climbing type, drive time, and approach times
· Topo maps or photos with route overlays for most routes
· Climbs indexed by star rating, difficulty, and more

Whether you are an Arizona climber who wants to get out for the weekend or a visiting climber seeking winter sun, this guide will help you make the most of your time on the rock. Most approaches are short, drive times from Flagstaff, Phoenix, and Tucson are noted, and climbs range from a few minutes to a full day. Even better, these routes have been selected for quality of experience, rated on a three-star system.

Ten major destinations are covered:
Dragoon Mountains Oak Creek Overlook
Granite Mountain Pinnacle Peak
Jacks Canyon Queen Creek
McDowell Mountains Sedona
Mount Lemmon Thumb Butte

Multi-pitch granite cracks and slabs, pocketed sport climbs on welded tuff and limestone, hand-friendly basalt cracks and corners, and soaring sandstone spires provide trad and sport climbers with all the variety the sport has to offer. Climbing destinations at elevations as low as 3000 feet and as high as 7000 feet provide escape from winter chill and sanctuary from summer heat. This fantastic climbing unfolds at locations easily accessible from urban areas, yet a world away from the rat race. And it's all enjoyed in a landscape as diverse as it is beautiful: serene pine forests, flower-studded oak woodlands, and saguaro-strewn deserts.

Crossing Arizona: A Solo Hike Through the Sky Islands and Deserts of the Arizona Trail
Crossing Arizona: A Solo Hike Through the Sky Islands and Deserts of the Arizona Trail
by Chris Townsend
Paperback from Countryman Press
ISBN: 0881505072

"Crossing Arizona" details an extraordinary journey through some of the harshest, most remote, and most beautiful natural terrain in the Lower 48. In March 2000, long-distance hiker Chris Townsend, inspired by the writings of Edward Abbey and Colin Fletcher, set out on a solo trek to explore the desert landscape that enthralled them. One of the first people to complete an end-to-end hike of the Arizona Trail, Townsend followed the rough, still-evolving route for 800 miles across the desert floor, through grasslands and mountain forests, and over rocky, snowy passes-all the way from the Mexican border, across the Sonoran Desert and through the Grand Canyon, to Utah. Hiking alone over the course of two months, Townsend rarely encountered another hiker; heat, discomfort, and the quest for water were constant concerns. But he also experienced moments of profound solitude and extraordinary beauty - gazing across the endless vistas of the Grand Canyon, making camp under the stars each night, or reflecting on the stark beauty of this vast, wild, uniquely American place. Illustrated with maps and photographs of his trip, Crossing Arizona is both an account of Townsend's adventure, and a vicarious journey through a spectacular landscape.

50 Hikes in Arizona: Walks, Hikes, and Backpacks through Sky Islands and Deserts in the Grand Canyon State
by Martin Tessmer
Paperback from Countryman Press
ISBN: 0881505994

An extensive guide to the best hiking Arizona has to offer.
Isn't Arizona just all desert and cactus? Not really. In fact, Arizona has more topographical and habitat variety than almost any other state in the U.S. With elevations that range from 70 feet near Yuma to 12,700 feet just outside Flagstaff, Arizona's great diversity in climate, geology, flora, and fauna will surprise non-Arizonans and residents alike. In a short day's drive, you can start out in the flat desert dryland and end up in arctic tundra among jagged peaks and you'll see much more that the state has to offer than just the Grand Canyon.
This myth-busting book showcases a select range of short and long trails. Included are hikes where you can find waterfalls, springs, snow, subalpine mountaintops, boreal forests, and watrous canyons. Take the Bright Angel and Rim Trails down the Grand Canyon; visit Native American ruins; hike to summits with jaw-dropping views. And you'll find the desert trails are hardly "barren"--they're alive with saguaro and organ pipe cactus. You can leave inner-city Phoenix and Tucson for hiking treasures you'll find nowhere else. 50 black-and-white photos, 50 maps
