Linda Vista Wall Rock Climbing
North facing with lots of shade. Short approach for this side of the Catalinas. Feels like the back country. A helmet is highly reccomended. Bring a set of cams up to #4 camalot if you want to do the big corner.
From Tucson take Oracle road North. 2 traffic lights after McGee is Linda Vista go right, towards the mountains. Trailhead parking is 1/4 mile up on the right.
From the trail head hike up hill after 20 minutes you will come to metal sign. Continue up on the right side of the drainage. This is the trail to Pusch Peak. About 15 minutes up the trail you will see a big low angle slab on the right with a conspicious green dot of lichen. Cut off the trail when you are even with the green dot. For Hierarchy of needs cut over a couple of minutes earlier heading for the left side of the slab

I just moved to tucson, if anyone has some info on linda vista bouldering that's been established I'd like to learn what I can. If there's not much established, I may take it onto myself to do some adding before work while it's cool. Any info would be appreciated.
