The greater Williams area has some fine climbing indeed. Both Paradise Forks and Volunteer Canyon are found in the sprawling forests south of Garland Prairie, on the rim of Sycamore Canyon. These columnar basalt canyons are home to some of the best crack climbing in Arizona.
Follow directions for the individual crags.

East Of Eden 5.10 6b 20 VII- 19 E2 5b AZ : Paradise Forks : The Gold Wall
East of Eden is one of the Forks 5.10 classics.It's long, steep and just hard enough to be lots of fun. Start by face climbing up blocky rock to get into the steep crack system.
