The Mine Area was one of the first to be developed for sport climbing out at Queen Creek. Routes are sort of a mixed bag from pocketed to edgey. There are lots of moderates around the Mine Area which makes it popular for climbers.
Drive up the road out of Superior, go through the tunnel for another mile and a half to a sign that marks the turnoff to Oak Flat Campground. Turn right and follow this paved road as it weaves up to the Magma Mine (probably some other name nowadays). About a hundred yards short of the actual mine entrance on the left, there's a small parking lot just off the road.
