DescriptionThis is the sunniest part of Thumb Butte and can sizzle shoes in the hot months but also provide for decent climbing during the cold. Most routes are low-angle and allow for very creative protection and nutcraft. A few bolted routes exist as well as some crack sections, but most climbs are face climbing with natural pro.
Falcon Closures from early February until mid-July. Details
Please contact the Prescott National Forest office for details. All climbing is closed on Thumb Butte to allow for Peregrine nesting during this time.
