The Beach hosts some of the hardest sport climbing in the Upper Devils area and is only a little further drive down the road from the Pancake House parking lot. It receives morning sun and afternoon shade making it a fantastic mid summer crag.

Getting There 

From the small camping/parking area (hosts a relatively large fire pit and small boulder adjacent to the camp). Head east across the road and you'll find a small grouping of cairns marking the start of the trail. Head left into the wash and then take a right as you see more cairns on rock slabs. Follow these but be careful as their is some hikers cairns in use. You'll come across a pole that is held up by a series of stones ( I couldn't figure out why they were placed) You'll come to the top of the wall if you keep heading straight. Two trees mark the top of the wall and from climbers perspective head to the right most tree. You can down climb in between boulders near the tree to the right and then head left down some easy 3rd class to get to the three stooges wall. I'll post approach photos soon to make this approach much clearer.

Spice has awesome movement right off the deck! You pull a small roof section to establish on the overhung slab face and will be confronted with small divots, mono pockets, and a perplexing crux that requires precision and power. Once you get into the upper roof section you'll be rewarded with hero pumpy jug climbing, but it can still ruin your ascent so be wary....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
