Description Suggest change

Windy Ridge covers climbs from Geology Vista (mp 14.3) up to the Matterhorn (mp 15.7).

A good variety exists here, with some very high quality routes to be found at Middle Earth. The Outback also has a high concentration of sport climbs. Cragging at this elevation can be a little too hot in summer, and potentially quite cold in winter, making spring and fall the best seasons.

Getting There Suggest change

Catalina Highway.
