for a road trip, which are the best climbing areas in AZ ?

I'd like just the places which are as good as Red Rock or Jtree, if there are any. Good rock (no choss, safe approaches, good weather in Feb and March.

Sport or trad, no bouldering.

I'm looking for up to 5.10s, not harder and prefer 1-3 pitches, not longer.

thanks!

Mt. Lemmon in Tuscon fits all your parameters.

Like Red Rocks and JT destinations? I second Cochise and Mt. Lemmon. Follow sun at either.

Many other areas too but smaller in size. Depending on where you are coming from. It could be worth a stop.

This is Queen Creek area (mostly single pitch):
