5 - Windy Ridge Rock Climbing
Only trouble makers hang out under brigdes.
Windy Ridge covers climbs from Geology Vista (mp 14.3) up to the Matterhorn (mp 15.7).
A good variety exists here, with some very high quality routes to be found at Middle Earth. The Outback also has a high concentration of sport climbs. Cragging at this elevation can be a little too hot in summer, and potentially quite cold in winter, making spring and fall the best seasons.

The most striking line at Middle Earth, War of the Worlds ascends a clean, rounded, vertical arete. When the angle lessens one can veer left for the complete two pitch experience or pull a small overhang for the lesser, but still 5.12-, variation.The climbing is a stark contrast from the overhung routes to the left. This one is all footwork. A true gem for the technicians.(Note: I have only climbed the mini-pitch so I can't speak to the rest of the route)...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
