Description 

Bill Williams Mountain hosts the classic Finger Rock (or Chimney Rock - a 90-140ft spire), oldschool bouldering at The Balls, as well as some scattered single pitch cragging, both traditional and sport. The rock is dacite or andacite of varying quality. Excellent camping and scenery.

Getting There 

From Williams drive about 5 miles south on Perkinsville Rd (starts on 4th street). Take a right turn on FR 111 - a dirt road that goes all the way to the summit. The climbing areas are all accessed off this narrow road.

A long and challenging trad pitch that follows a rough looking crack in a right facing dihedral. It climbs much better than it looks. Do a little bulge move to gain the crack, then stem and jam for 50 feet to an easier finish. Holds hidden in the crack give relief to gobiphobia. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
