Description

All of the climbing described on this page is on private property. Climbing in no longer allowed. Signs are posted in multiple locations. Please respect the land owner and do not trespass. Trespassers will incur a "Criminal Trespassing" charge.

A fun little desert bouldering area. Not too many problems, but more quality than Gate's Pass. This area does not see quite the climbing action it once saw, but is well worth the visit. The rock is very much like that of some of the famous eastern Sierra bouldering areas near Bishop (Happy Boulders).

I have read and been told that these boulders are located on private property. There is no sign posted, and I have never heard of any problems with bouldering here. Still best to practice "leave no trace", so climbers can continue to enjoy these boulders.

Getting There

There are many different options, but I will go with what I believe to be the easiest one. From Tucson, take I-10 towards Marana and exit at Cortaro Rd. Turn left (south) and drive until you intersect Silverbell. Take a right. Drive on Silverbell a good ways and almost completely through Marana until it forks. Go right. Follow Silverbell around until it goes up and over a small pass. You will see a large dirt pullout on the left. The boulders are on the right side of the road directly off the road after a few minutes walk.
