Description 

This area includes the routes found in the Lower Devils Canyon area immediately adjacent to the road.

Getting There 

Driving directions/parking: Follow driving directions from main Lower Devil's Canyon page. With high clearance 4wd you can park at the end of the road (the ant hill). This is also a popular primitive camping spot, as evidenced by the increasing number of fire pits. Without high clearance 4wd, park off the road as far as you are comfortable driving and hike the rest of the way in. The last segment of the road between the Hackberry parking pullout (just past the windmill) and the ant hill is by far the roughest of the entire drive in.

Approach: Routes can be found on the north side of the road before (west) and around (north and south) of the parking area.

Emiliosaurous 5.7+ 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  AZ : Central Arizona : ... : Road Area
Easy face climb with horizontal cracks and pockets for placements. There are two hangers at the base of the mushroom top. If you stop here the climbing is under 5.8. If you continue to the top, the climbing is around 5.8 and you must downclimb to the rap anchors on hand jive (five jive?) to then rappel to the ground or walk off to the east....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
