Description 

Sunny typical south facing wall with a few good lines but a long approach for Windy Point. The trails (as of Jan 09) are non existent.


Getting There 

From Hunchback, walk S down a gully trending toward Turret Rock. Continue downhill until the top of the formation appears. There is a 45' rap off the northern side into a shady tree area and the S wall is gained via a gully.

A variation climbs straight off the end of the flake and over the right end of the roof (also 5.8+). Be warned, if you go up 1/2 way through the traverse (above the pro hole), the moves are balancy and steep and could be h...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
