Please take note of the request for climbers to avoid disturbing raptors if at all possible.
Self-policing our behavior is MUCH better than an outright ban!

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.
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.
