Basics
Location:
About 19 miles (30.5 km) southeast of Williams
Type:
Other

Description

Located at the headwaters of Sycamore Creek in the 55,937 acre Sycamore Canyon Wilderness, this is a special place. The ponderosa pine forest and canyon country are relatively durable environments, but water is scarce and spring run-off powers Sycamore Falls usually no later than April each year. From April through November, however, this becomes one of the most popular rock climbing areas in the southwest, known as "Paradise Forks."

Several thousand people, many of them climbers, visit Paradise Forks each year. A variety of skills and techniques are required to ensure a safe climbing experience. Seek instruction from qualified sources before venturing onto the cliffs. Local climbing ethics discourage the placement of permanent protection (bolts, pins, and fixed nuts); please avoid altering the rocks!
