Description

South facing Malapai cliff face. Great crag with some super fun lines! It's climbable through the winter as long as it's sunny and through the summer except on the hottest days. Mostly trad or top rope but more sport routes to come.

Getting There

Take Hwy 77 north out of Show Low or South out of Snowflake. Just north of the small town of Shumway, about halfway between mp 354 and 355 you'll see a dirt road leading west. There is a large Boulder that tells you you're on the right road. Follow the road up to the dam and to a parking area. Follow the obvious road/path up to the crag. Look for the classy graffiti by Lyle and Jessica (thanks guys!) Super easy approach.

For the leftmost three routes, I am sure someone played on them cracks prior to us. More than willing to throw credit to whomever played on them first, but pretty easy, fun warm up stuff.

We tried these the same weekend Michael, Ashley and Aaron bolted some lines next to us that we jumped on after they finished them up. They put up some great lines for folks who are stuck in town. Fun homey crag! Thanks for the work put in here! Aug 7, 2018
