|The promised lands are somewhat hard to find the first time, as there are many roads which crisscross each other. Heading from Prescott take 89north into chino valley. turn right on perkinsvill road. follow perkinsvill road for a couple of miles till you come to hidden ranch road. there is a large sign out front. turn left. after a short distance the road splits, take the left road and parallel the right fork. when you come to a large area that has an eroded dirt pad with ATV tracks all over it, turn left, and follow that road (trending left) till you come to a white gate. turning right or left after the gate will take you there, but the right hand road is slightly less difficult. park in the flat dirt pad, and walk down the canyon to get to the routes. there is an approach trail marked by cairns, or the impact of just walking in the sandy wash is very low. there is great camping down canyon in the wash, be sure to follow LNT ethics|

|These directions are no longer good as the gate is gone and the area is changing rapidly. "They" appear to be putting in a gas pipeline or something so the way in has changed. I'm terrible with directions so I won't try to tell you the way in, just ask around before you go out.|

Since this is a tricky area to find, I thought I would add some detailed directions:
From Chino Valley, turn right (East) onto the signed road for Perkinsville Road. Zero your odometer and follow the below instructions. Keep in mind that these can change and there is more than one route to this climbing area.
After 3.3 miles, the paved road ends. Keep going straight
After 4.4 miles, turn left onto the signed junction with Haystack Road.
After 5.0 miles, stay left (going right leads into a housing development)
After 6.0 miles, stay right and go through an opening in a fence and cattle guard.
After 6.5 miles, stay left at the fork.
After 6.6 miles, stay right at the fork.
After 7.2 miles, stay left and go through an opening in a fence.
After 7.4 miles, stay left at the fork.
After 7.6 miles, stay left at the fork.
After 7.7 miles, stay left again.
After 7.9 miles, stay right at the fork.
After 8.0 miles, head through an opening in the fence and keep straight.
After 8.9 miles, you’ll see a fork with a windmill and water tank on your right, turn left here. The road gets pretty rocky and rutted from this point. A high clearance vehicle is needed.
After 10.0 miles, you’ll be able to see the canyon in the distance and a primitive parking area.

Thanks to Scott for getting us there, just a few minor corrections given some of Transwestern's little changes to the area! Trip report:

|What are the three routes in the canyon when you approach from the campsite? They are in the section where it narrows up and are on the right side. One is closer to wash and the other two are up the hill a little bit. Thanks in advance|
