Hackberry Creek Rock Climbing
Looking down into Hackberry when it's just a wee b...
Hackberry Creek is south of the Road area. The creek runs approximately parallel to the road and eventually joins Devil's Canyon. Routes can be found on both sides of the creek and are a mixture of traditional, mixed, and sport. There is a 40' waterfall a bit more than midway down the creek. A faint trail south of the waterfall leads up to the Centerpiece Area (routes found here include Centerpiece, Dacite Conspiracy, Lady in Red...).
Driving directions/parking: Follow driving directions from main Lower Devil's Canyon page. If you have high clearance 4wd, the best option for parking is a pullout just past the old windmill (before the end of the road).
Approach: Hike alongside the creek as it diverges from the road. A tower with a large southeast facing roof on the north side of the creek is a good identifying feature; this is the the Great Roof and is home to A Dog's Bark (5.9) and Oh My doG! (5.10).

Start pitch one on a flake that goes up and diagonally. Connect more small to medium gear onto a second left leaning flake. Continue up a vertical crack using medium to large cams and finally traverse left to anchors. Plenty of room for a large group at this belay station.We started pitch two in the crack left of the anchors. Marty's paper guide says "straight up" which would be face climbing with some small horizontal cracks as protection. Take this vertical crack left of a bulge, pass a p...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ

A 70m rope is very helpful out here, as it saves bringing 2 ropes on many climbs, specifically: Just Say Yo, Smokin the Toad, Ain't Nothing But a Thing, Loose Roof, Easy Street, Dacite Conspiracy, Right On, etc.
