Description 

Hills bristling with granite boulders of all sizes. Rock quality varies. Secluded and uncrowded. Hot in summer and wasps can be a problem where they nest in cracks. Best to go in cooler months.

Getting There 

Drive north out of Prescott on Williamson Valley Road to Fair Oaks Road. Drive west on Fair Oaks 3.6 miles and turn left onto a dirt road that leads to the obvious rocky hill. 30-40 minute drive from town.

I've been doing a lot out here lately, repeats and new problems, so will try to post photos of what I think are the most classic lines. Perfect winter spot and I've been pleasantly surprised at the quality. Ricochet and Unhinged are two of the most classic lines so far.

This place is great. Far enough from roads I can hear myself scream in frustration haha. Does anyone know the rating of the "classic crack" mentioned in the photo of "tall face?"

Ridge, I remember the name better than I do the rating - "High Plains Drifter". I want to say it checks in around 9/10??, but not too sure. High and fun.

Aaron, Any chance I could get more info on the routes you added out there? Mostly the locations. I'm putting together the 4th edition of Prescott Bouldering and would like to add them. And anything else you might have! Thanks, Bill

Great isolated locale!
