Description

Located in northern Tucson, this recreational area charges a fee to park and another to ride the shuttle. Climbing is allowed but not encouraged. The Acropolis, Whipple Wall and Kor Wall are @ 500' tall walls of gneiss. It can be loose in spots and great otherwise. This is a trad area, not a sport climb to be found.

Getting There

From center of town, head north on Swan to Skyline Drive and take that road east to Sabino Canyon Rd. Pay the fee ($7) and ride to your crag.
