DescriptionThe Crown King Area encompasses several separate rock outcroppings. The largest, and perhaps most widely known and popular, is King Dome. Others include the Fool's Gold Wall, Mile 26, and Roadside Wall.
These can all be considered remote climbing areas. Rock quality is typically good to excellent granite.
Most, but not all, of the routes are south (or south-east) facing.
The climbing season is generally late fall to early spring.
Getting ThereFrom the Valley and points South, exit 248 (road to Bumble Bee) off of I-17. Drive 24 to 28 miles on gravel road, depending on which area you are going to. From the North one would take Exit 259. These areas are all just outside the mountain town of Crown King, located in the Bradshaw Mountains.
One does not need a 4-WD vehicle to climb at any of these areas, but a 4-WD does make access to King Dome more pleasant.
Please refer to the separate areas for more specific information. Marty has a pocket guide for this area.
