Is a class 3 in AZ stiffer than in CO?

So I did Browns Peak this weekend (or at least I gave it a try) but ended up bailing out about 3/4 or so up the steep chute when things became almost vertical and I did not feel comfortable to continue on as I would have to downclimb it as well. Also, I was solo and didn't see anybody up there except a few cars at the trailhead and a few kids I passed who ...

Vandals and thieves in Calico Basin

This is just a heads-up that I should have posted several days ago.

On the morning of April 17, shortly after 6 A.M., my son and I left the trailhead at Calico Basin to head up Ash Canyon. When we returned, I found that the front windows on the driver and passenger sides had been smashed in. Whoever did it was looking to steal things, as was clear from the open glove compartment and center ...

California Ridge crash site

Traversed California Ridge today (between I-15 and Valley of Fire) and found a lot of scattered but mostly very small debris up high about 100' beneath the crest, ~2 miles (?) north of where the road to Weiser Mine cuts thru it. Unable to find any info online, does anyone happen to know anything about this site ?

Moving to Phoenix?! Looking for info

I haven't been very active the last couple of years here on SP but I haven't been very active in the mountains either. I was kind of in a hibernation state in the Midwest except maybe a weeklong trip every other year to CO.
I might have an opportunity to move to the Phoenix area (currently in Chiagoland) working in Tempe and I was looking for some info from the locals. Where are good areas ...
