Description 

A small but surprisingly fun bouldering area scattered around the base of Lizard Rock. Despite their proximity to the ever popular Matterhorn Boulder, these boulders seemed to have been mostly overlooked or forgotten about. Shade or sun can be chased, so should be pretty climbable most of the year. A good way to squeeze a little more bouldering out of your day if you plan on hitting the Matterhorn.

Getting There 

Park at Matterhorn/Lizard Rock pullout. Follow trail heading south from parking area towards Lizard Rock. Alternately, for a few of the boulders, head west/southwest towards the creekbed for a few of the boulders.

Poor man's version of Wu Tang Sword at Molino Basin. Start on the underside of lowball roof on left-facing block, slap and squeeze both aretes, climb almost to end of boulder. Topout on the left side, with an excellent mantle finish. Despite being lowball and a touch chossy, is actually quite fun. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
