Description

Easily accessed from the SR 87 by parking on the east side of the road just south of the bridge. Head up loose embankment and follow ridge line to the base of the crag. Or access the top by Flowing Springs Rd 1/2 mile south of the bridge again on the east of SR 87. Use the parking area on the left just as the road turns right and heads down to the river bed.

Went to East Verde area for a few hours. About 6-7 miles north of the 260 intersection in Payson. Nice little cliff. Only climbed a couple of routes, but it seemed they were well equipped for lead and most were simple (with enough webbing) to toprope.
Great afternoon area (when its warm). Faces NNE. Got some morning sun.
Some routes were a bit 'pebbly' but should clean up nicely.
In general, steep (vertical & some roof) and fun.
Thanks for all the prep work equipping these routes. Sep 25, 2011
Does anyone know if there is climbing on the river parking side, or is this side off limits for permanent bolts? Jul 29, 2013
