Arizona Rock Climbing
Another great way to explore our beautiful desert is through rock climbing. The terrain and rocks found in the desert here are different from that found in more typical climbs. The rock is porous and known to move quite a bit. For this reason, it is recommended that only expert climbers take on these climbs and even then, use extreme caution and care.
Crab Claw Rock
The best known climb in the area is Crab Claw Rock which is located on the east side of Highway 95 just six miles north of the Lake Havasu City Airport. The climb can be easily seen from the road and looks just like a crab's claw, hence the name Crab Claw Rock. Exact coordinates for this climb are 34.61733, -114.337453.
There is no parking lot, so most climbers either park on the shoulder of Highway 95 and hike the half mile or so to the climb, or take an off-road vehicle on the dirt roads to get closer.
