Granite Mountain is a 7,626-foot (2,324 m) mountain located in Yavapai County, Arizona. Its southwest face has a sheer granite cliff approximately 500 feet (150 m) high that is one of the best locations for rock climbing in the state of Arizona.
The biotic communities at Granite Mountain range from montane conifer forest and juniper pinyon woodland, to interior chaparral.
