Description

Hairpin Rock is due east of the Left Hand Wall and features some nice moderate routes of both trad and sport variety. The easiest approach is to hike past both the Right Hand Wall and Hairpin Rock staying in the wash. At Hairpin Rock turn right (east) and hike along the north face gaining elevation. Climb through a small chimney to reach the majority of the climbs.

If you try from the east side you'll need to do some class IV scrambling. Be aware of loose rock in the area.

Getting There

Park at the hairpin pulloff to the right just as you are entering Mount Lemmon. The obvious canyon will be to the north. Follow the wash to whichever rock interests you.

The approach takes 20-25 minutes.

The area with routes #6,7&8 is in need of a lot of work! As it stands now, there is extreme accident potential, with loose rock both on the ground and on the routes. I would be happy to see this area cleaned up and would love to help. Dec 10, 2003
