Description

Beautiful quartzite crag just outside Pine, AZ. Routes ranging from 40ft to 300ft. 5easy-5.12.

Camping is available everywhere in the Tonto National Forest.

Getting There

From Pine, Arizona drive south of town, just past Bradshaw Drive to Pine Trailhead. A large paved parking area puts you on the Arizona Trail. Head southwest and downhill for several minutes. As you reach the gate and ranch (on your right), look for climber's trail heading left at the base of the hill.

Another option is to drive from the clearing south of Pine Trailhead along Old County Road to near the original parking area. Park near here.

As you arrive at Pine Creek along the climbers' trail, look for the trail which rises sharply on the south side of the creek bed, just before the rock along Pine creek becomes an impassable cliff for hikers. Follow this trail up on over the hill as it meanders along a dry gully (usually) and across the flat top for a while. Eventually the trail takes you down to the walls.
