Description 

Bill Williams Mountain hosts the classic Finger Rock (or Chimney Rock - a 90-140ft spire), oldschool bouldering at The Balls, as well as some scattered single pitch cragging, both traditional and sport. The rock is dacite or andacite of varying quality. Excellent camping and scenery.

Getting There 

From Williams drive about 5 miles south on Perkinsville Rd (starts on 4th street). Take a right turn on FR 111 - a dirt road that goes all the way to the summit. The climbing areas are all accessed off this narrow road.

Nice two pitch line on the South Face. Follow large dihedral through a gap and onto a nice big, comfy belay ledge - 5.7. Climb thin hands crack to the summit blocks - 5.9+. Probably the best free climb on the spire. Recommended....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
