15 Rock Climbing Destinations

Can you believe people climb this rock? Spider Rock stands 800 feet tall in the Canyon de Chelly National Park in Arizona. This is just one of 15 rock climbing sites detailed in this article, which also features a tribute to the late extreme rock climber Dan Ozman. http://www.hottnez.com/the-15-most-spectacular-rock-climbs/ -Thanks, Grzegorz Paslawski!

There are Navajo living on the floor near the Spider. It is sacred to them and they co-own it, will never give permission to climb and I would think if the rock didn't kill the the First Nation people would.

Looking at this superb Spider Rock reminds me of the outback wonder, Ayers Rock that has become the Rock Resort (West Australia). At one time, the Aboriginals claimed that Ayers Rock was a sacred place that people were not allowed to climb the Rock. Climbing rocks is always a challenge, but imagine the challenge faced by these Aboriginals trying to protect their sacred land and the challenge of the Australian government to open this beautiful piece of land for the world to see. Spider Rock is standing tall only challenged by rock climbers.
