Description

Stewart Pocket is a nice area with good climbing on mostly solid granite in a scenic location near Payson, AZ. It is fairly undeveloped, so there are a lot of potential FA's waiting to be done.

Getting There

From the Beeline Highway & 260 intersection in Payson, take 260 east for about 1/2 mile and turn right onto Granite Dells Rd. Follow it roughly south for 1.2 miles paved, then continue on a dirt road for another 2.4 miles" until the road ends at a just before a large wash. Proceed south to the dozens of rock formations across the wash.

The road ends 1/4 mile before the ranch and big wash. The so-called "Stewart Peak" crag is not visible from this point. I say so-called because it is not marked on the USGS topo map. Sep 3, 2012

Good point Larry it isn't on the map. It is a simple name for the granite dome on the west edge of the pocket. Something I just called it.

The road closure is relatively new. Nice to keep the area from further degradation. Nov 12, 2012

Having explored this area a bit, I think it'd be great to have a map view -- like a Google Earth screen shot -- posted showing all these random different areas marked. Would help navigation a lot. Thanks Manny! Jun 8, 2016
