Description 

Prescott is a beautiful little city, and she is loaded with granite!! From the awesome bouldering of Groom Creek to the 500' wall of Granite Mt., to the tricky folds of the Dells, Prescott has a substantial list of quality routes both trad and sport. Add to that the basalt areas Thumb Butte and Sullivans Canyon, as well as the quartzite Promised Land, and you have a perfect mid elevation destination, to either shake the cold of NAZ, or to cool off from the lower deserts.
