Description

Steep and forgotten, Aguaworld has a lot of good quartzite, pumpy routes, and an odd 5.9. Located near the mouth of the canyon and facing the southwest it has good sun, so pick a cool day or a morning. Most of the routes are bolted, some that aren't are scary.

The new subdivision is killing the original approach.

Getting There

Park in the pullout next to the brown "No Camping" sign about half a mile up the canyon from the electric sign (just before the bridge). Here, the north slope isn't as steep. Cross the street and follow an established trail that climbs to the west. Eventually, you'll arrive at an old service road at the base of some mine tailings (loose talus). There are some switch backs through the talus that lead to the remnants of the broken aqueduct. Plan for a 15 minute hike. P.S. Bring water, Aguaworld is a misnomer.

It's about .6 miles from the electric sign at the parking lot. If you park .5 miles at the brown sign you can get there too, but that path sucks! 10 minute approach. Best path is to climb over the tailings pile and not go around it. Trail puts you right at Smoke Em If You Got Em and Burn Tough. Mar 16, 2013

Ryan's directions are good, but plan on about 10-15 min, not 30. Apr 7, 2012
