Class is in! Time Zone Wall, Watson Lake.

Partially Closed.


Easy access, good rock and an abundance of routes serve to make this Watson Lakes most popular climbing destination. Several long ridges of rock radiate westward from the lake's shore and on most of these you'll find routes to climb. There is a mix of sun and shade. Summer/early fall can be hot, but in the few hours before sundown it can be suprisingly nice. Late fall, winter to spring is often excellent.

Getting There 

Hike north from the north boat ramp using one of the trails mentioned in the Watson Lake overview.

Hour of Power 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  AZ : Central Arizona : ... : Time Zone
Work your way up a small flake, then to a shallow right facing corner. Crux comes just past the bolt with small hand holds leading to thin edges for fingertips and then to the anchor.A good lead for a solid 5.8 trad climber, and an excellent top rope for an ambitious beginner. Beautiful view of the lake from up top....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
