Outdoor Rock Climbing at Tom’s Thumb

Best of Arizona

Looking for outdoor adventure in Arizona? Try outdoor rock climbing! Phoenix and Scottsdale have a lot of cool spots to climb for a fun outdoor adventure.

IMG_0729This past weekend, we had a fun outdoor rock climbing experience with StoneMan Climbing Company.

We met at the Tom’s Thumb Trailhead in Scottsdale where our guide, Hugo, provided us with all the rock climbing equipment. Once we learned how all our equipment worked, we were ready to get climbing.

During our 3 hour trip, we were able to climb two challenging but fun areas. Our guide was really great about helping us get comfortable before we emerged ourselves into the climbing experience. Once we started climbing, we found that outdoor rock climbing is much more challenging than indoor rock climbing but also a lot more rewarding!

The cool thing about StoneMan Climbing is that very trip is custom tailored to the individual. When I signed up for the experience, I was expecting other people to be in our group. I was pleasantly surprised to learn the rock climbing trips are kept small to provide personalized attention and a great experience. Here are a few of the benefits of climbing with StoneMan:
