Stewart Pocket Rock Climbing

Stewart Pocket is a nice area with good climbing on mostly solid granite in a scenic location near Payson, AZ. It is fairly undeveloped, so there are a lot of potential FA's waiting to be done.
From the Beeline Highway & 260 intersection in Payson, take 260 east for about 1/2 mile and turn right onto Granite Dells Rd. Follow it roughly south for 1.2 miles paved, then continue on a dirt road for another 2.4 miles" until the road ends at a just before a large wash. Proceed south to the dozens of rock formations across the wash.
Climbing Season For the Central Arizona area.
Weather station 2.5 miles from here

The road ends 1/4 mile before the ranch and big wash. The so-called "Stewart Peak" crag is not visible from this point. I say so-called because it is not marked on the USGS topo map.

Good point Larry it isn't on the map. It is a simple name for the granite dome on the west edge of the pocket. Something I just called it.
The road closure is relatively new. Nice to keep the area from further degradation.
