The Pond is one of the most popular destinations at Queen Creek, and for good reason. There are a multitude of good moderate routes here, mostly on good pocketed rock. The area faces south is generally in the sun and warm, so plan appropriately.
The Pond is found up on the hillside about a mile past the big tunnel you pass through coming out of Superior. Park in a big lot on the right, then hike beside the road, carefully cross highway 60 at the bridge and then scramble up through the rocks to reach the Pond.

Mona Lisa 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- E3 5c AZ : Central Arizona : ... : The Pond

From here, you will utilize lie backs, finger locks, and even a hand jam to surmount the bulge. This is an engaging route with a great overhanging finish and is at least as fun as the over hyped edging of The Soft Parade. ...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
