Hike this challenging trail located in the Camelback Mountain area.

This difficult trail is rather popular and contains many desert species common in the Camelback Mountain area. It is a 2.5-mile round trip up to and down the summit. The hike features rocky surfaces that require light rock climbing and confidence in each adventurer. The trail itself is rather busy, but not many hikers linger at the top, providing ample time to rest from the climb.

Documented as one of Phoenix's first climbing areas, the Praying Monk is the opening gateway to other climbs that the Phoenix area has to offer. This rock climbing area gains about 800 feet in elevation and, with the hike to the area, is 1.5 miles round trip. It is recommended to take the trail near the “danger, bees” sign, providing a cleaner angle to view the final figure. The first length is fourth class, for those who are familiar with climbing lingo. There is a small cave and several boulders to serve as rest areas. Paradise Falls, the Gargoyle Wall, and Mummy Valley can be seen during this adventure. Keep in mind that parking is limited, so it may be best to come during the week or earlier in the mornings to get a parking spot. This is a great area for those who enjoy hiking and rock climbing.
