DescriptionHitchcock Pinnacle may be the most recognizable rock on Mt Lemmon. It is located just above the main parking area at Windy Point, making it popular among climbers and tourists alike.
This 40' freestanding column is most commonly climbed by its 5.7 north face, however all three routes ascending the formation are worth doing. Each route has one bolt, so unless you are willing to run it out 20 feet or more, bring some gear. Top rope can be set on all three by means of fixed anchors/chains at the top.
Despite the crowds, these climbs are great fun and incredibly photogenic.
