There are more than a dozen routes and problems in this area covering a wide range of difficulty. Most of the routes can be top-roped using bolts that are generally in good condition. According to Prescott Bouldering, this area is also called The Shipyard.

Getting There 

From the Metate Parking area, head South on trail #353 until you see a large outcrop of boulders to your right from the trail. If you nearly walk past the boulders, then make a 90 degree turn and head up along one of the climber trails, you'll likely end up at the Northeast face. From the Southeast face, simply circle the boulders in a counter-clockwise direction.

Featured Route For Northeast Face
Rock Climbing Photo: Straight up the crack. Aptly named route

Hamburger Helper 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  Arizona : Central Arizona : ... : Northeast Face
The obvious crack visible from the loop trail. Hand to fist size, and even wider in some spots. Straight up then finish on the flake as the crack turns slightly left near the top. Slightly overhanging for the first half. Rock surface is rough and will chew up your hands, but fun route nonetheless....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
