Basement Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Basement Wall from creek side view.
Steep and quality Granite wall in the Prescott National Forest on Hassayampa Creek.
From Prescott drive out Senator Highway past Groom Creek until the road turns to dirt. Turn right on Wolf Creek road. Follow to the parking for Wolf Creek falls, where the western side of trail 384 crosses the road (see Prescott Trails map). Hike down into the valley on this trail to Wolf Creek. Cross the creek and continue south on another well defined trail up and over a ridge to Hassayampa Creek. Follow the creek downstream and look for a small drainage on the left. The wall is 20 yards or so up the drainage. If you come to where Hassayampa Creek bends sharply to the right you have gone too far. Approach time 15 - 20 minutes.

For what it's worth I cleaned and sent a number of problems on this wall in 1999/2000. Good directions. I never posted them because I couldn't remember exactly how to find it. I remember the problems being good, thanks for posting.
