The Stovepipe is an enjoyable tower a short walk from the Windy Point parking area. Located just right of New Wave Wall, this tower hosts two enjoyable 11s on the west face that can serve as decent warm ups for the steeper and harder routes on New Wave. A couple hard routes await those wishing to court hard 12 and 13.

Getting There 

Park at the first pullout down road from the main Windy Point parking area. Head down road about 50 yards and take a trail downhill towards Hunchback Pinnacle. Take a left at Hunchback and walk under Wind Wall towards New Wave Wall. The Stovepipe is the large obvious tower facing Wind Wall and to the right of New Wave.

Clipping the chains with a trail of tick marks and shoe rubber below I smiled; Footnotes had lived up to its byline.Delicate edging and crimping leads to a low angle rest. From the midpoint on, the hands fade into crimps and the feet into smears. It is improbable and totally awesome. Footnotes is highly rec...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
