Closed to climbing, Feb 1 - Aug 31 MORE INFO >>>


A sunny,exposed SW facing crag with very good quality rock. Good choice for a first time lead. Most routes are well bolted.

Getting There 

Just after mile post 18 park at a pullout on the left (south) side of the road. Walk down the road (towards Tucson) for a short distance until you see an "Ice May Be Present" sign. Follow a faint trail up a small gully where the rock meets the road. A steep, somewhat awkward ascent brings you to the base of the crag. Traverse left and through a gap in the rocks to find the routes. Approach time 5-10 mins.

The rock here is bullet hard, and the holds are different from most Lemmon crags, i.e. sharply incut. Climbing these routes in stiff-soled hiking boots will add a level of interest, esp. on the upper section of GumButtress.

Yes. Or at least as far as I know. The Coronado National Forest website says all of Barnum Rock, and the Gumby Wall is part of Barnum Rock. Maybe someone should add the "access issues" note to this area.

There's a route that climbs the East facing wall to the right of Gumbuttress; at least there are four bolts on the upper section of this wall. Does anyone have information about this route?
