Granite Dells

About

The Granite Dells recreation area is an Arizona icon. Made up of unique exposed granite boulders just waiting to be explored, the dells and surrounding lakes are full of opportunities for climbing, hiking, kayaking, picnics, and wildlife observation. We love hosting climbing classes, guided hikes, kayaking and more in this scenic location.

Rappelling

Descending cliff walls on a belay is just as fun as scaling them, and it can be an easy introduction to the world of rock climbing. This activity is great for true beginners and groups who want to try something new together.
