This is one of the most beautiful crags in Arizona. Its called the Library for the two dihedrals in the middle of the crag. It's clean and strait forward for the most part. The climbs range from 40'-60'. As you leave Payson to go toward Jacks Canyon, Isolation, or Pine/Strawberry, you will cross the East Verde about two to three miles out side of the Payson city limits. Before you cross the bridge, park on the right side of the Road. The Climbs that I've done are on the south side of the river. An easy trail follows the ridge of the hill and leads you strait to the base of the Crag.Be careful and don't fall off the edge into traffic.

Getting There 

off to the east of the 87 just out side of payson heading north
