About Mt. Lemmon:

Mt. Lemmon rises on the north-east side of Tucson, beginning with a picturesque ascent through one of the world's finest saguaro forests. As you climb the thirty-mile highway littered with crags, you experience a diversity of biomes and pass by impossibly balanced pinnacles like in a Road Runner cartoon. While Tucson swelters in summer heat, the pine-covered Summit Crags remain cool. You'll find thousands of climbs of all grades - sport and trad. Don't miss the pie on the summit!
