Description

Rockfellow Dome is perhaps the finest chunk of rock in Arizona. It has some of the best crack and face climbs anywhere. Anyone climbing in Arizona should aspire to stand atop this rock.

The rock is divided into spires by massive fissures. One of the best outings in Arizona is the Inner Passage - a perfectly formed cleft that passes all the way through the Rockfellow Group, between Rockfellow Dome and Chay Desa Tsay.

This formation is flawless granite. It lacks the seas of chickenheads found on the surrounding domes - most of the climbs are crack and face routes.

Getting There

Approach as for What's My Line. Follow the drainage up from the Rock in the Middle of the Road and turn left when reaching the divide to approach most of the routes. Approach time is a hour if you know the way and maybe 2 if you don't.

You can also get there from the west - the trail crosses the divide about .4 miles from the rock. This trail also goes back to the campground - an alternative to stumbling down the climbers trail in the dark if you have no light.
