Comments: Dear Climbers:

We love climbing at The Pond, Atlantis and the Mine area. They are favorites for most of us who climb in the Queen Creek area. These areas have been the private property of Resolution Mining Company and its predecessors since the 1960's or earlier. Climbing on this private property, The Pond, Atlantis, and parts of the Mine areas now requires that you register in order to gain legal access. This is an easy process.

Comments: Please be outside of the gate at Pinnacle Peak Park prior to park closing. This “hard” closure requirement was part of the negotiated agreement between climbers and the City of Scottsdale that allowed Pinnacle Peak Park to open and that rock climbing can continue.

Under the closure requirements, all users, including rock climbers, MUST be outside of the gates. It doesn’t matter where you parked. If you are “inside” the gate at park closure, which adjusts seasonally, you are “trespas... more >>

Comments: Please remember the City of Scottsdale policies (shown in the Comments on the overview of the McDowell Mountains). No new bolts in new locations. It is in our interest to keep these things relatively quiet and handle them internally and not draw public attention to them.

Comments: Climbing friends,

Below please find the rock climbing guidelines that govern rock climbing in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve.

The City of Scottsdale’s City Council has formally adopted climbing policies and maps for the McDowells. There were years of work and meetings on which this final outcome was based. In order to keep our climbing areas open we will need to abide by these policies and keep the crags clean.

As you can see, they are modeled after the Pinnacle Peak Park climbing guidelines.... more >>
