Carney Springs Wall is North-east (NE) facing; lots of sun on the wall into the early afternoon (even during winter). Look for a large NE facing wall with lightly colored rock in a distinctive pattern.

Rock quality on CS Wall is decent, but not as good as Bark Canyon. Although the wall may be seen from the road, this is a fairly remote area.

Getting There 

Accessed via the Carney Springs road. Carney Springs road (no longer open for vehicles) connects to the Peralta Road. Look for a parking area and a gate on your left as you make a sharp right hand turn (road here trends NE) on Peralta Road. The parking area is about a mile or so before you get to the Peralta Trailhead.

Although a gate now blocks driving access to the end of the road, a 12 minute walk gets you to the fence from where the trail starts. The Carney Springs Wall (and the Acropolis) can easily be seen from the road (looking W-NW). Most of the original trail is difficult to find. Thus, expect about 2 hour approach to the base of the CS wall.

The crux is the start of the third pitch. The move can be protected with a small cam (e.g. blue alien). The route does wander a bit. The Phoenix Rock (Jim Waugh edition) guide book has a good photo and route description. Rock quality is ok....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
