This is a great summer area. Not only is it nice and cool because its at the top, but it is also in the shade for a good portion of the day. You are unlikely to see many other people here, and if you do it is likely they are hiking out to the Fortress and not stopping to climb the few routes that are here. If you've not climbed up this high on Mt. Lemmon you will be surprised to see that the rock is different. It is very much like the rock in Tuolomne Meadows in YNP.
Drive all the way past the ski area and up the access road to the Mt. Lemmon Observatory. There is a parking lot with trailhead that heads out to Lemmon Rock Lookout. Hike this very wide trail for a ways past Quartzite Spring (metal shed). Further down you will see a electrical transformer box on the right. Shortly after this cut left into the pines and pick up a very distinct trail that leads to the back of the Ravens and The Murray Wall.

This is an interesting climb. I feel like this could be lumped into the "warm-up for The Orifice" category. I found it a bit harder than Mandatory Doug Testing. The climbing is also a little less straight forward which makes for more interesting climbing....[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
