Green Slabs (South Face) is a great destination for moderate trad lines. Routes range in difficulty from 5.6 to 5.12 with the majority in the 5.7 to 5.10 range. The crag sees some traffic but is rarely crowded. It is minutes from the road and partially shaded by trees. Most, but not all, routes have chain anchors. The wall resides at a comparatively low elevation and faces south, making it a good choice for cool days. The crag sees morning shade but is otherwise sunny.

Green Acres (North Face), which is located on the north face of the Green Slabs Area is a small, lush crag that never sees sun. The routes force peculiar movement over undulating, twisted features. The fractured rock creates a feeling of unease but somehow manages to hold together. This wall is a bizarre, unique, slightly unnerving crag with both sport and trad lines.

Getting There 

Park at the mile marker 9.9 pullout on the east (summit bound) side of the road. The pullout is immediately before pronounced road cuts on both sides of the highway. The Green Slabs Area is the formation to the east which touches the road. Green Slabs (South Face) is the south facing wall; Green Acres (North Face) is the north facing wall.

Missing in Action is an enjoyable, naturally protected route that follows a system of cracks and thin flakes up the west face of the lowest Green Slabs rock. The climbing is easy and most of the gear is good, however the thin flake probably won't hold a fall on a cam, so be careful through the middle....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
