Stewart Pocket is a nice area with good climbing on mostly solid granite in a scenic location near Payson, AZ. It is fairly undeveloped, so there are a lot of potential FA's waiting to be done.
From the Beeline Highway & 260 intersection in Payson, take 260 east for about 1/2 mile and turn right onto Granite Dells Rd. Follow it roughly south until the road ends at a large wash & ranch. Walk across the big wash then head towards the rock formation of your choice.

The corner is very clean and has only a few holds, but excellent stemming gets you to the top....[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
