Arizona's Granite Dells is a "beautiful garden of mini-domes, sharp pinnacles, abrupt cliffs, and shallow
canyons;" similar (in composition) to the coarse-grained granite found at J-Tree NP in California.

Sky-blue Watson Lake sits within the SE corner of the Dells,
and provides a wide array of recreational activities aside from technical rock climbing.

Until climber Bill Cramer began exploring/climbing the crags NW of Watson
Lake in 1994, virtually no routes had been established. Over the next three
years, Cramer climbed over 300 topropes and boulder problems.

In the winter of '96 - '97', he enlisted the help of Rusty Baillie, and the
climbing duo proceeded to bolt and climb over 50 routes.

Please enjoy these pictures, and let the "Spell of the Dells"
take you away ...!

Thanks! I was told that if a picture doesn't have a detailed
description to go with it, then it's not worth the price of paper
it's printed on.

Then, we entered the Digital Age, and I became nothing but a pawn
in the electronic chess game of Life ...

for crying out loud!
