looking at tucson from windy point parking lot
This area covers routes found on the ridge extending southwest from the Windy Point parking area. The two exceptions to this are Iranian Wall and Czech Wall. These are backcountry crags and not a part of Windy Point West per se; they are included here because these crags are traditionally accessed via Windy Point West.
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.
If you are looking for a very high concentration of easily accessible three and four star routes, then Windy Point West may fit the bill. This area is also home to Beaver Wall which boasts most of the hardest routes on the mountain. A great diversity of trad, sport and mixed climbs can be found here making it a popular destination for climbers at all skill levels.
Park at Windy Point parking area. Cross the highway and hike past the restrooms. Beaver Wall is down and to your left. To access other crags, hike down the ridge a few minutes before dropping down the west side.
See individual crags for detailed access information.

A stellar route with amazing features, great gear, and tons of surprise holds and placements which seem to appear just at the right time. One of the best 5.10s on Mount Lemmon. It is well worth the approach to the wall for this climb alone. Climb right facing flakes to a stance under a bolt. Continue up steeper climbing including a short power lieback (large camalot) to thin 'shark gill' like cracks. Exit the crack system and follow the weakness up and slightly left to a ledge with 1/4" button...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
