Classic Mt. Lemmon climbing. You must try the Rupley Routes (R1 through R4).
On the Mt. Lemmon Hwy just below the Windy Point pullout. It used to be the second small parking area below Windy Point, but currently road construction occupies that parking. Park lower, at Punch and Judy towers and walk up the road a bit. The towers are visible from the road. Just below Rupley Towers is Tri-Level Spire, notable for the apparantly balanced block the size of an SUV.

Just to the right of this there is a ramp leading right to a bolt (the direct start straight up to the bolt is very thin 5.10). This is R4. Climb past the lone bolt to the crack in the roof.
