F5 Sedona Challenge Day

Sedona is famous for their red rock sandstone formations, steep canyon walls, and pine forests. The red rocks form a beautiful backdrop for your choice of incredible activities: hiking, mountain biking, or rock climbing. There's only one challenge day so choose wisely, you won't be able to do all three!

Rock Climb Challenge

 

To participate in this activity you must have basic knowledge of climbing and have your own basic climbing gear (a harness, climbing shoes, and belay device) and have used them at a gym or outdoors.

 

We will be climbing on the Fun Ship Rock. There are routes ranging from 5.7 to 5.10c. We will mostly stay with top rope routes but there are some two pitch trad climbs for the adventurous.
