Mango Boulder Rock Climbing
From Tyler McMillen's Tucson Bouldering:
This 30 foot long orange wall is one of the best in Tucson, and probably the best summer boulder in town. It is in the shade in the afternoon. The wall is blocky and steep; it overhangs from 10 to 45 degrees, and has the highest concentration of steep problems in Tucson. There are tons of holds on the wall, so in addition to the problems mentioned here, there are a plethora of eliminates to do. You are only as limited as your imagination.
From the last parking lot at the terminus of the road past Summerhaven, take the Aspen trail up the hill. Follow the trail up the hill about 5 minutes, until it comes to the top of the first hill, and starts to flatten out. Continue long the trail for about thirty feet after it flattens out, then veer left off the trail, before the trail turns right and heads downhill. Veer down and left for about 50 yards, until you come to a big firepit, then cut down under the next boulder. This will bring you underneath the boulder's face. If you have trouble finding it, from where the trail flattens out, hike directly downhill to the rim of the canyon, and then turn right, then hike (bushwhack) along the rim, The boulder is on the rim, with the face facing downhill toward the river.
Immediately before the Aspen trail turns right and starts going downhill, look down in the direction the trail had been going. There is a prominent rock visible. That is the top of Mango.
