Main Boulders Rock Climbing
JJ firing off Moonstone 1998
Somewhat wooded but also plenty of warm sun. Excellent, though coarse granite boulders with a variety of sloping and crimpy holds. Callouses are a big help! See the Prescott Area Bouldering Guide for the most recent information.
From 307 hiking trail cut left (westish) off the trail when a close grouping of large boulders can be seen just off the trail at a slow right hand curve.
From school bus pullout on Senator Highway, hike up the obvious trail across the street until it deadends at an obvious group of largish boudlers.

Steep! Sit-down start at the obvious jug underneath the boulder on the right side, near the edge of the drop. Steep but positive pulls out the overhang until your feet cut loose, then a dynamic move up to a crescent incut near the lip. Slap the dish over the lip and then don't come off the finishing jugs and you are there.One of the best problems Groom has to offer.PLEASE CLEAN YOUR TICK MARKS OR DON'T USE THEM AT ALL!...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ

Went up to Groom Creek for the first time last week and fell in love. So many fun problems and it was great seeing a strong (and friendly!) local scene. With MP being what it is, it's not always easy finding your way around, especially by yourself... so I've snapped a few pictures and started adding a few references to the Marty Karabin topo to help anyone that's unfamiliar have an easier day.
If I got anything wrong or mixed up, let me know!
