Description

Rad Rock is the higher of the two most prominent rocks visible from the parking area. It lies just behind Trad Rock. Rad Rock contains a number of difficult sport routes in the 5.10-5.11 range. All in all, it's a great sport crag in an unbeatable setting.

Rock quality is generally good, but can be chossy in places. Use caution on unknown terrain. Watch out for nesting wasps and bees up on the rock.

Getting There

From Tucson, had east on I-10 to exit #303 (Tombstone/Bisbee). Turn right (south) on Arizona Highway 80 and drive for about 20 miles. Just before Tombstone, turn left onto Middlemarch Road. Follow this rough gravel road for almost ten miles to Forest Road 687. Make a left, towards the West Stronghold and follow this dirt road another two miles north. Make a final right turn on a dirt road that leads to a circular parking area. The crags are visible from the road.

A good trail leads across the drainage below the parking area, and uphill to the crags.
