Four little pinnacles and a wall with 30 routes from 5.5 to 5.13. Many of the climbs are in the 5.10 range. Most lines are bolted, but there are gear routes as well. Pretty easy to follow the sun or shade depending on the season. The walls face SE or NW. Lots of large rocks and trees for belay seats, shade, etc.
The trip down is fairly steep, even for Windy Point, but it's pretty short. Park at the pullout right next to the towers just before Windy Point (milepost 13.6 with the new mile-markers) on the south side of the road. At the west (right) end of the pullout is a broken stone wall. Go past this and the trail is there. It looks like a sheer drop at first, but the trail hooks right immediately and is not easily seen. Scramble down typical Windy Point scree and boulders and agave until you are past Punch & Judy towers (the main wall to the left). A trail leads down to the right end of Canines & Lobos, or cut across in front of Punch & Judy to another trail leading to the left end of Canines.

Start off up an easy slab and then crimp your way up a gently overhanging face. A fun route that boils down to two one-move boulder problems in the V5-7 range: both involve long moves off of small holds. You do 12a/b climbing up to the first crux, get an excellent rest, fire the second crux, and then cruise to the top.If I recall correctly, the whole thing is less than 20 moves, but it's action-packed.Nothing to write home about, but if you've got strong fingers and weak endurance, it's probably...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
