McDowell Rock - A Climber's Guide is the authoritative source on rock climbing in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve of Scottsdale, Arizona. Erik Filsinger has been the key contact between the City and the rock climbing community. He served on the City's Preserve Commission and the Board of the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy. In those positions he assisted the City in developing their rock climbing plan. In McDowell Rock, Erik Filsinger and Cheryl Beaver lay out the key elements of rock climbing in the McDowells - parking lots, trails, climber access routes, overviews of each crag, and the routes themselves. Much of this information, including many new routes, is presented for the first time in this brand new guidebook and is not available anywhere else.
