Description

Trad, sport, and bouldering on a fun wall. The rock here varies from very good to very bad. Make sure you assess the bolt situation from the ground, some lines have very old bolts. I have unscrewed many bolts by hand (for safety, if they were fallen on, they were coming out anyway.) Other than that, great sport climbing is to be had. There is a great (but sharp) 5.13 on the backside, as well as great 5.6s. The only problem with the area is the absence of multitudes of moderates.

Getting There

From Prescott, go north on 89. The cliff is obvious on the right. Parking is at the intersection of Hwy 89 and Granite Gardens.

Does anyone know if that "5.13" on the backside by the decent gully has been climbed? I heard from few different sources that it is a joke and hasn't been climbed. Nov 3, 2011

Every time I'm up there I take a look, I've never even seen chalk on it from being projected. I just stare at it thinking.."There is no way." Nov 3, 2011
The route on the back side "Silver streak" has been climbed a few times. After Sterling Murray lead it at age 15, Leo Hensen downgraded it to 12+. Nov 20, 2011
The High Rappel Dell is in the midst of a "facelift". Members of the Prescott Climber's Coalition are replacing the old hardware with bolts provided by the American Safe Climbing Association. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at kevininprescott@yahoo.com. Oct 30, 2012
