Description 

A quiet, shady area that sees very little traffic. The rock quality varies from good to great depending on the route. Expect to also climb on some very loose sections and be willing to share the crag with the vultures that roost among the walls. If birds are present, show some respect and go climb on Barks Canyon Wall.

Getting There 

Take the Bluff Springs Trail to the Barks Canyon Wall climbing area. Continue north on the trail for about a mile and Terrapin Throne will appear on the East side of the trail. It is a short uphill hike to reach the base. If you get to the Terrapin/Bluff Springs trail junction you have walked a bit too far. From the parking lot to the base of the climbing area it takes about 45 minutes.

Pitch one contains the crux. Some questionable rock and a bulge. The pitch is about 150 feet, has a bit of lichen at the start, loose rock midway and near the belay. Pitch two (125 feet) follows crack system along an increasingly narrowing ledge with a short boulder problem near the beginning. Nice views into the big chimney/slot....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
