Queen Creek Canyon slices sharply through the southeastern edge of the Superstition Mountains east of Phoenix. The canyon, carved by Queen Creek and traced by US 60, is lined with compact cliffs, buttresses, pinnacles, and fins composed of pocketed volcanic ash. The rock offers great climbing, with sinker pockets, shallow dishes, crisp edges, and positive holds. The rock is ash flow tuff that was deposited between 15 and 24 million years ago by violent volcanic eruptions. Much of the soft rock was hardened by heat and pressure. Queen Creek, like other welded tuff climbing areas, offers vertical faces for climbers. This guide includes The Pond, Atlantis, and Queen Scepter climbs.
