This area is a soon to be local crag located about 2 miles to the southeast of The Ice Castles. Me and my friend have been cleaning and developing the area for over 4 months now. There are about 30 established boulder problems at around 15 feet. There is still numerous boulders in the area with very hard stuff. The easiest climbs here are arounn V3 and up. There is possibility to have V10 and above easily, they are great lines also.
This place now has very easy access. Take 50th avenue north from happy valley road through housing development to the gate and a bridge. If you are going to ice castles continue on the main dirt road untill you see the area and can turn left to access the area. You no longer have to tke the long road from cave creek to get to the area. For the ice capades you are going to make a left after about a 1/4 mile from the bridge. The area is south east from pyramid peak and by taking roads and getting back there you will find established boulders and non established boulders. I am giving directions to this place because i can no longer help with development because i am moving to flag for college.

Make very powerful moves on finger locks and bad feet till the crack widens and tops out. Top out on good holds....[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
