Phoenix Rock Gym
"I’m a big fan of Phoenix Rock Gym. They’re super friendly and there’s always a great crowd of people to climb with. They also have a good variance on types of climbing they offer from top roping and leading to two separate bouldering areas. Even if you’ve never climbed before it’s a great place to go and start learning!" - Zane Bickham

"It’s a great hike to do during the summer because you’re constantly in the water so you’re not getting too hot. There’s also a lot of fun rappelling and the canyon is beautiful." - Zane Bickham
