1989...JB on Three Piece Route (5.12-) at Windy Po...
According to Squeezing the Lemmon II, "this short section of the highway is from milepost 13.6 to 13.8 (edited) and has the greatest concentration of climbs anywhere on the mountain". Most of the cliffs found here are east-facing, but there are exceptions, so comfortable microclimates can be found in all but the hottest times of the year.
Windy Point is a vista/overlook spot where one can see the entire Tucson valley, making it a popular stop for tourists. Parking and bathrooms can be found here, as well as a plethora of high quality climbing routes.
Most of the climbs can be best accessed by parking in the large lot at Windy Point, or in one of the pullouts just downhill from Windy Point proper. See individual crag descriptions for best approach.

One of the better 11- climbs on Lemmon and should be on your tick list if you're after routes at that grade. Start in corner trending out and right onto face. Then up through crux to larger holds and slightly left to a rest. Up and over small roofs to finish. Anchors are just out of sight over the last roof. Most stop at the chains rather than taking it to the top....[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
