The Boneyard is a great mid-mountain destination to escape the heat of summer. Several quality sport routes can be found here, from 5.9+ to 5.12-. The area shares an approach with the uber popular Ridgeline crag and can be a welcome haven from the crowded gym-like atmosphere that can occur there.
Park on the right pullout at milepost ~18.5 next to a quarry of white rock. Don't get too discouraged when you see 4-6 cars in this area as most of the climbers are likely at Ridgeline. The trail for both areas begins up a steep slope at the upper end of the lot. As you work your way up the drainage wash take care not to slip on polished slabs. The hike reaches a saddle intersection and breaks off to the right and to the left. Take the right trail to the base of the climbs. The approach should take approximately 15 minutes.

A long first pitch that has a lot of easy climbing up to a roof. After the roof it eases up a bit then it gets interesting and sustained most of the way to the anchors. When the angle kicks up the climbing and the rock get really good. The second pitch heads up the easy chimney 15 feet or so until possible to pull on to the bolted face. The climbing is good and finishes strong. The exposure and position of this pitch make going to the top worthwhile. The route is new and it will take time ...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
