1989...JB on Three Piece Route (5.12-) at Windy Po...
According to Squeezing the Lemmon II, "this short section of the highway is from milepost 13.6 to 13.8 (edited) and has the greatest concentration of climbs anywhere on the mountain". Most of the cliffs found here are east-facing, but there are exceptions, so comfortable microclimates can be found in all but the hottest times of the year.
Windy Point is a vista/overlook spot where one can see the entire Tucson valley, making it a popular stop for tourists. Parking and bathrooms can be found here, as well as a plethora of high quality climbing routes.
Most of the climbs can be best accessed by parking in the large lot at Windy Point, or in one of the pullouts just downhill from Windy Point proper. See individual crag descriptions for best approach.

This is probably the easiest route on the New Wave Wall although it is one of the best. Climb small crimps to the hole. The start might be more difficult for shorter climbers. Climb past the hole on delicate moves past an optional tcu placement. Once on the ledge, continue on 5.9 climbing to the chains. Gets morning shade....[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
