Four little pinnacles and a wall with 30 routes from 5.5 to 5.13. Many of the climbs are in the 5.10 range. Most lines are bolted, but there are gear routes as well. Pretty easy to follow the sun or shade depending on the season. The walls face SE or NW. Lots of large rocks and trees for belay seats, shade, etc.
The trip down is fairly steep, even for Windy Point, but it's pretty short. Park at the pullout right next to the towers just before Windy Point (milepost 13.6 with the new mile-markers) on the south side of the road. At the west (right) end of the pullout is a broken stone wall. Go past this and the trail is there. It looks like a sheer drop at first, but the trail hooks right immediately and is not easily seen. Scramble down typical Windy Point scree and boulders and agave until you are past Punch & Judy towers (the main wall to the left). A trail leads down to the right end of Canines & Lobos, or cut across in front of Punch & Judy to another trail leading to the left end of Canines.

Delicately climb a less-than-vertical face using small edges and nubs past two bolts. When the angle steepens pull through a short powerful crux on pockets and edges to obtain a rest at a platform. Two short sections of face and a second platform lead to the chains.Butchwax is a pleasant enough romp on interesting features but ultimately too short and inconsistent to leave a lasting impression. Depending on your body type and climbing strengths the route may feel a bit soft for the e...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
