Knob Hill Area Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Knob Hill formation
This is a good area for the winter because it is one of the only walls in the morning to get the sun. the rock here does not seem to get much traffic due to its longer approach and that there are really no trails. The rock here is desert granite, quality is actually pretty good.
When coming down 128th street turn left and continue on road until it ends at a parking lot next to some weird looking boulders just stacked on top of each other.The climbing area will be east north east from the parking lot. take to road by hiking to a cattle fence, there are many beaks in the fence, find the best one. Please do not drive to this point on the road, we want to keep our climbing areas available, thanks, from there find the best approach to the routes, 5/6 of them are on the north and east sides.
Climbing Season For the McDowell Mountains area.

This climb has good edges and is pretty well protected, good rest at clipping positions, the crux of the climb is between the 2nd and 3rd bolt, it still has good holds only it is a little steeper. The belay is not that fun though because you are standing in bushes. Finish the climb and belay at anchor, few pieces for anchor would be good....[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
