Description

After wearing a white cloak all winter long, Mingus Mountain glows green and gold in the morning light, standing tall above the Verde Valley. A passing climber wonders, "There must be something climbable up there." Be willing to search out these small and hidden crags and reap the benefits of only having to share the area with ghosts of the pasts as you encounter artifacts of another generation rusted in the washes. Limestone, Tuff, and Basalt randomize across the mountain with Ancient Seabed Sandstone poking a nose out here and there.

Getting There

North from Prescott on 89A and South from Cottonwood is the 7,800 ft peak known as Mingus Mountain.

Not a bad little crag at all, but what is the deal with all of the anchors? Most of them were one bolt/one rap ring, or one bolt/one bolt with a quick-link (laying flat to the wall). Curious if you have had problems with people stealing rap rings or if you set it up this way intentionally. Dec 13, 2017

Hay boots. Glad you took ten time to check out this convenient crag. Would love to leave perma-biners or add chains to these routes so if you get the itch to donate please do! Jan 6, 2018

Just want to say THANK YOU to who-ever bolted this place. I just moved to Clarkdale from a vibrant climbing scene in Missoula, MT and am feeling a bit lonely. Climbed at Mingus today and was ever-so-greatful to whomever put in the effort to bolt this. Really lovely route-design and if you ever need compadres to improve or develop other local spots PLEASE reach out. Thanks for great day! 1 day ago
