Queen Creek Canyon Rock Climbing 


Queen Creek and its many volcanic towers is the home of central Arizona sport climbing and bouldering. The rock is volcanic tuff and the routes go from deep-pocket pulling down to tiny-edge crimping, depending on the area. Many of the routes here were established between the early ‘90s and present day. 

Where is it at? 

Queen Creek Canyon is found above the small town of Superior, AZ, about an hour’s drive (depending where you start) east of the metro Phoenix area. Drive through Superior headed east, go up the hill and the various areas will be found after you get through the big tunnel. 

Weekend Weather 

Due to location and elevation, temperatures are milder with highs in the upper 70s for this Saturday and Sunday.
