ISOLATION CANYON ROCK CLIMBING
IN GILA COUNTY, ARIZONA
This serene canyon tucked behind Pine, AZ has been incised into beautiful quartzite by Pine Creek. The canyon walls offer routes from 1 to 4 pitches and the rock is bullet-hard and coated with lichen in a variety of striking colors.
The rock is near-vertical and is incredibly featured, producing hundreds of moderate routes. The perfect edges and surprising friction of the rock that makes it so fun to climb also limits the difficulty of the climbing.
The rock here lends itself well to linking pitches with long runners. You could link the three pitches of Peacenik for a pretty incredible 200’ bolted pitch!
