Description 

Hills bristling with granite boulders of all sizes. Rock quality varies. Secluded and uncrowded. Hot in summer and wasps can be a problem where they nest in cracks. Best to go in cooler months.

Getting There 

Drive north out of Prescott on Williamson Valley Road to Fair Oaks Road. Drive west on Fair Oaks 3.6 miles and turn left onto a dirt road that leads to the obvious rocky hill. 30-40 minute drive from town.

I've been doing a lot out here lately, repeats and new problems, so will try to post photos of what I think are the most classic lines. Perfect winter spot and I've been pleasantly surprised at the quality. Ricochet and Unhinged are two of the most classic lines so far.
