The Big Pine Towers are a group of short towers in the Rupley Tower area. If you can climb hard enough, there are routes on both sides that will let you chase sun or shade. These towers have mostly hard routes, but there are several short, sustained moderate routes as well.

Getting There 

Park at the first pullout down road from the Windy Point Vista - mile marker 13.7. This pullout is also used for Hunchback Pinnacle, New Wave Wall, and Rupley Towers (among others). Walk down road 200 ft to a drainage spillway and follow a path downhill, angling right past a short tower. The west face of the tower group is visible after rounding this short tower. Continue down the scree slope towards the base of the wall.

Crux is about midway, and requires a right-foot high-step/rockover/mantle for most. Otherwise, good moderate Lemmon face climbing. Holds aren't all huge but they're positive....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

The easiest way to approach Big Pine and the Rupley Towers is to walk down the road about 150ft. from the pullout and then follow a trail straight down the hill.
