Stone Cove is an excellent and compact area comprised of three different walls with both southwest and southeast exposures. There are about two dozen clean lines from V0 to V4 with good landings. Despite the moderate grades, expect unique and distinct lines. A great place for spring training.

Getting There 

Just over 2 miles from the store on Lake Mary Rd, there are two semi paved pullouts on the south side of the rd. These pullouts are within 300' of each other. Park at the second pull out.
Hike up along the west side of the gully following a fairly decent trail. The Cove Wall is up on the right, and the Hidden and Anchor Walls are up and on your left.

Backwaters is a classic little romp up some big holds on the steepest part of the bulge. Start off of little crimps and move up and left to a breast like pinch hold. Move into the good pockets above and left of this, and left again to a very good, solid jug on the right side of the Giant Hollow Flake. Square up, and toss straight up for a great finger bucket, and then a good right hand hold over the lip....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
