BETA PHOTO: Table Dome in Mendoza Canyon

Access is via PRIVATE land and may be CLOSED! MORE INFO >>>


This dome is located west from the notorious Elephant Dome. It features an obvious east face that takes sun most of the day but is shaded late in the afternoon.

The most popular climbs are Café Mendoza, Wily Javelina, Table for Two and Beggar's Banquet. The rock, for the most part, is of excellent quality, but it may be really bad in particular places. Be aware!

Table for Two and Beggar's Banquet are fully equipped with anchors and chains for rapping. Independently of what you climb, if you get to the summit, use either one of these safe descent routes.

Getting There 

From the water reservoir, follow the cairns up through a big granite slab. When the trail branches, take the left hand side, heading west. The right side will take you to the Elephant Dome. The trail will take you up stream into the gully that runs down between Elephant Dome and Table Dome. Follow it until you get to the base of the wall.

This is a phenomenal line that wanders up a low angle wall. This canyon offers fantastic views. The line itself is very fun and climbs on different kinds of granite on every pitch. The bolts are a bit spaced, but this is not a problem if you are a comfortable 5.9 climber. If you get lost, keep looking, in most cases you should be able to spot the next bolt from any given one. When the route is not clear, the climbing is easy, so just follow the 'easy-way' up and you surely will find the next bol...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

Went in there Sunday night, camped by the gate. Right at the gate we ran into a couple ranchers who asked what why we were out there. We told them we were there to climb. They looked a little impatient and said "Just climbing eh?" We again said that yes, we were just there to climb. The driver said basically, "Okay, cool. Be safe out there" and cruised on his way.

On our way out, we noticed that there was a hand-written note in the registration box saying that Mendoza Canyon was closed due to destruction and theft of predator traps.

Not sure what it all means, but we left the campsite meticulous, and hopefully other climbers won't give them a reason to lock the gate.
