Rock Climbing in Lake Havasu, Lake Havasu City, California USA

Cliffs height:
15-150 ft/4.57-45.72 m
Lake Havasu is situated behind Parker Dam on the Colorado River, just on the border that joins California with Arizona. On the eastern shore of the lake lies Lake Havasu City.

The 45 mi (72.42 km) long lake’s capacity is 648000 ac/2622 km² on a very low desert elevation of 482 ft (146.91 m). The concrete dam that makes a glorious arch was built between 1934 and 1938 by the United States Bureau of Reclamation.

There are two aqueducts that need to be filled with water and that is exactly the lake’s primary purpose. Except from that purpose the lake is also available for fun and especially rock climbing.

The wicked rock formations, the steep trails and the rising up to 150 ft (45.72 m) make Lake Havasu a hot spot for rock climbers. Find the adventure you are looking for by climbing on the huge rocks of Crystal Cliffs.

It is highly recommended to take all precautions. Near the lake are many shops and schools that will help you by providing lessons or equipment.
