Getting weather forecast...


New/Old climbing area west of Phoenix. Nothing that nice but there are some decent climbs out here if you spend the time looking. *4x4 or some clearance is highly recommenced* due to the deep sand on the way there.

Getting There

From Salome road turn left (sout west) on highway 60 for 1,500ft then take a right on Center st. Follow that to the end and turn left on Hall ave. Follow that for around a half mile then turn right on the dirt Indian Springs road. From there follow that down for 2 miles. Then turn left and follow that down to the climbing. (use the maps for more specific turn-off locations)

We scoped this place out back in the late 90's based off the old Rock in Road book.

The amount of rock was impessive. There is history here, but very little known. We saw several bolted routes which seemed late 70's early 80's. Anyone know the history?

Would love to see more pics. Nice gem in the rough out there. Nov 6, 2013

I really wish I knew who bolted those routes, I've asked many long term locals but they do not know so I am assuming it was visiting climbers. ,It is a very nice un-known place with much potential for many forms of climbing. I am going out tomorrow to scope out some new walls and work on my new project and I will take some more pictures for the routes listed, There are quite a few routes I have not posted yet that I need to get around to doing. Also I am currently rebolting the two original routes because the bolts had rusted pretty bad. right now the bolts have been removed and shall be replaced as soon as possible. waiting for the hangers to ship. quite a few new lines are going up soon. being a highschooln student my money for bolting is quite sparse at the moment so progress is slow.

to Michael,The most I have been able to do was bolt the anchors to my new project, I was heading out with a friend to go scope out a new crag and rebolt the old climbs but my friend crashed his quad on the way out so we didn't get to go out that day since it was spent repairing the darn thing. However I will be back out hopefully this weekend to see what I kind do. just ordered a bunch of bolts and hangers too! so expect more in the near future. Jan 28, 2014

Rad, okay. I'd like to get out there as well to scope out the possibilities, if that's okay. I know you said you just ordered some but like you said, you're a student, sometimes it's hard to come by. So whatever hardware I have, you could feel free to use as well. Jan 28, 2014
