Pima Canyon has the highest concentration of problems in South Mountain. Although considered a choss pile by some, the well travelled routes are generally free from breakage. Some of the less travelled routes should be approached with caution. Overall there is a high concentration of mediocre problems with a few gems scattered about. Any way you look at it, it's better than the gym!
From the parking lot at 48th St. and Guadalupe head down the Pima Canyon Dirt Road. This meets up with national trail and is the most traveled path in this part of the park. After a mile of walking on the dirt road you will encounter a stone ramada on the left (south side) of the trail. At this point head left (southwest) up Pima Canyon. After a 1/4-1/2 mile of travel up Pima Canyon you will run into the entrance wall.
