The greater Williams area has some fine climbing indeed. Both Paradise Forks and Volunteer Canyon are found in the sprawling forests south of Garland Prairie, on the rim of Sycamore Canyon. These columnar basalt canyons are home to some of the best crack climbing in Arizona. Bill Williams Mt. is home to The Balls, an old school Bob Murray bouldering area, as well as some newer sport attractions. Don't miss out on Bill Williams Spire, AKA Finger Rock if you are in the mood for a small adventure. The Center Pinche Area is also found out here, as well as the land of a thousand climbs, Sycamore Point.
