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.
Park at the nice big new pullout for the Rupleys just downhill from the Windy Point Vista around mile 14.2. Go down the ugly scree-strewn slope angling to your left towards the short towers in front of Rupley Tower A.

Arete pinching, small crimps and clever body positioning makes for an entertaining crux sequence. The route takes the line up the prominent arete on the right side of the formation. ...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
