Description 

Mid-Mountain covers climbs between Willow Canyon Circle (~milepost 16) up to the Palisades Ranger Station (milepost 19.4).

This large area has a huge diversity of climbing in cool ponderosa pine forest, offering a great respite from the desert. However, large portions of the forest in this area were burned in the 2004 Aspen Fire. Be on the lookout for falling dead trees and other hazards in burn areas.

This long and winding sport route doesn't really have a stand-out crux but multiple tricky sections that might make you study the rock to the find the line. The holds are all decent sized when you find them. The upper face which is a little steeper and climbs through slanting rails is particularly good. Be careful when lowering. Even with a 60m rope I had to down climb a bit....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

Anyone know these climbs? They are below "Ridgeline" on a wall that ranges 100Ft tall on the uphill side and close to 250Ft on the downhill side. They have modern hardware and are mostly trad. They sure look like some nice lines.

Impressive looking face and dihedral on the downhill side of the formation between "Ridgeline" and the "Red Diamond Wall." No trail leads to this area and it is overgrown! I'd be interested in cleaning up the place and get a trail in, but I'd like to know more history about the area first.
