Looking down into Hackberry when it's just a wee b...

Description 

Hackberry Creek is south of the Road area. The creek runs approximately parallel to the road and eventually joins Devil's Canyon. Routes can be found on both sides of the creek and are a mixture of traditional, mixed, and sport. There is a 40' waterfall a bit more than midway down the creek. A faint trail south of the waterfall leads up to the Centerpiece Area (routes found here include Centerpiece, Dacite Conspiracy, Lady in Red...).


Getting There 

Driving directions/parking: Follow driving directions from main Lower Devil's Canyon page. If you have high clearance 4wd, the best option for parking is a pullout just past the old windmill (before the end of the road).

Approach: Hike alongside the creek as it diverges from the road. A tower with a large southeast facing roof on the north side of the creek is a good identifying feature; this is the the Great Roof and is home to A Dog's Bark (5.9) and Oh My doG! (5.10).

Oh My doG! (O.M.D!) (photo by Marcy)

Oh My doG! 5.10 6b 20 VII- E2 5b  AZ : Central Arizona : ... : Hackberry Creek
This climb has mostly moderate moves (5.7-5.8) with the crux move (5.10) at the roof. Relatively easy climbing to get established below the roof, a series of crux moves getting over the roof, and then a fun headwall above the roof to the top. There is what appears to be a loose block on the face below the roof, but we were unable to dislodge it; it is fairly solid. One can step around it....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

A 70m rope is very helpful out here, as it saves bringing 2 ropes on many climbs, specifically: Just Say Yo, Smokin the Toad, Ain't Nothing But a Thing, Loose Roof, Easy Street, Dacite Conspiracy, Right On, etc.
