Class is in! Time Zone Wall, Watson Lake.

Partially Closed.


Easy access, good rock and an abundance of routes serve to make this Watson Lakes most popular climbing destination. Several long ridges of rock radiate westward from the lake's shore and on most of these you'll find routes to climb. There is a mix of sun and shade. Summer/early fall can be hot, but in the few hours before sundown it can be suprisingly nice. Late fall, winter to spring is often excellent.

Getting There 

Hike north from the north boat ramp using one of the trails mentioned in the Watson Lake overview.

Sinister Exaggerator 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  Arizona : Central Arizona : ... : Thor's Wall
Radical sidepulling, pinching and crimping up an overhanging wall. Begin atop a short detached pillar and make technical, demanding moves past several bolts to the ledge at the top. Sustained! Might feel a bit reachy in spots. This route receives an 11d/12a rating in the Falcon guide, so take that for what it's worth....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
