Hunchback Pinnacle is a prominent, freestanding formation just below Windy Point. Steve's Arete, which is on the cover of Rock Climbing Arizona by Stewart Green, is the highlight as it climbs the beautiful and exposed downhill side of the pinnacle.
Park at the pullout immediately before the Windy Point parking lot. The parking pullout is at mile marker 13.7 on the left or downhill side of the road. The trail begins by the "Parking Pullout" sign at the highest point of the pullout. The left trail takes you to the top of Wind Wall. The right trail down the drainage takes you to Hunchback Pinnacle. The pinnacle is only 100 yards from the highway. You can see it from the highway when standing uphill from the pullout but downhill from the Windy Point overlook. Approach time <5 min.
