SEAMLESSLY FITTING CLIMBING IN TO OUR MODERN LIVES: AN INTERVIEW WITH COLIN COX
Colin Cox has been climbing and developing routes in Northern Arizona for decades and has been a fixture in the Flagstaff climbing scene for many years. He has established routes and built crags all over Northern Arizona, with much of his effort focused on Mt Elden at Solitude Canyon, the Red Dragon, the One Wall, and Oaklands. I had the chance to ask Colin a few questions in this, the first in my series looking at influential climbers and developers in Northern Arizona. Colin’s stories and insights on the value of climbing shed light on the natural integration of climbing with life.
Thanks so much to Colin for sharing some pieces of his story and for all of his contributions to Northern Arizona climbing!
