Description

Dave's Arch is a small quartzite arch in the basin west of Granite Mountain. There are a hand full of steep problems on the north side and a few others on the other. The rock is sharp and the holds (finding them) can be quite confusing compared to other local areas. This is adventure bouldering at its finest, and there are several steep classics to discover. It is the unique nature and placement of this arch which make it a worthwhile jaunt if the motivation and opportunity arise.

Getting There

From Prescott, drive past Granite basin Rd. for about 5.5 miles down the hill. There will be a dirt road on the rt. Take this and then take the first right into a parking/camping area. Drive to the end of this and park. Hop the fence and then hike south along a shallow wash up to the rocks.

Some fun bouldering to be had along a white crystal quartzite Ridge - super good rock quality. Moderates all over. Plenty of Highballs and steep hard stuff too. Worth the trip... once maybe. On the small side. Many Gunshots. Mar 4, 2015
