DescriptionLittle Granite Mountain is another classic desert climbing area, featuring some really good climbing spread out over an array of various formations on the flanks of the mountain. The rock is coarse-grained desert granite with the climbing fairly traditional in nature, both gear and bolted routes.
Thanks to the efforts of the City of Scottsdale and many citizens who voted in the funding that made it possible, the area encompassing Little Granite Mountain (known as "Granite Mountain" on topo maps) is now part of the McDowell-Sonoran Preserve.

Getting ThereLittle Granite Mountain is reached by driving north from the intersection of Dynamite Road and 136th Street. Keep an eye out for where the power lines cross over the road. You'll find a short paved access road on the left leading to a humongous gravel parking lot. This is the trailhead.
