Climbers on Mount Lemmon are no stranger to pinnacles and towers. This 200ft freestanding pin, only a few yards from the base of the Butterfly Wall, is markedly different in character to its lower elevation brethren. The east face of Trundle Pinnacle is home to the very best pocket routes in Southern Arizona. The area at the base is also a wonderful place to hang out and enjoy the shade, trees, and views.

Getting There 

Follow directions to the Butterfly Wall. This is the obvious 200' spire.

Best pocket route of its grade in the Catalinas. The hardest part about this route is settling on which jugs to use. A low crux gives way to shamefully large pockets on the upper face.With a standard rack it is possible to continue up from the slab left of the anchors. Climb the bulge, then left, then up through bulges to the "high-point" anchors on the pinnacle. A single 70M rope will get you back to your pack. Might be a good idea to bring extra webbing for the anchor.(Please note that the roc...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
