Deep Water Soloing at Clear Creek

East Clear Creek

All levels of climbing available. Water is about 75 degrees, perfect to cool down in. No rapids, easy to paddle.

For the best deep water soloing, go left after unloading the canoes or kayaks. At first, you might see a lot of people, but the further you paddle, the calmer and more peaceful it gets!

Getting there: North on I-17, exit 285 at Camp Verde and go East on Hwy 260 then North on AZ 87. Turn right onto AZ-99, right before Winslow. Parking is best at McHood Park.

Geronimo!

There are lots of really neat places to climb along the cliffs of the river. The water was chilly, but really not too bad. I just climbed barefoot so I didn't risk ruining my climbing shoes. Great spot!
