Comments: You can thank Jimbo for using up the best of them. Guys brain never stops thinking of them. We've probably forgotten a couple of hundred that just didn't quite work for a particular route.

Comments: Did this today, good job on the bolting, angle allowed me to work out the crux puzzle. Only a little fuzzy but worth doing. Great to climb something I have never been. Thanks Luke and Tiff.

Comments: This route had all the mixed metal bolts replaced on 12/20/15 with ASCA 1/2 inch Stainless Steel Rawl 5 Piece bolts. The Anchors were not mixed metal so we left them in place.

Comments: Those bolts are Rawl 5 Piece bolts and they can and sometimes become spinners. You can try with a 7/16ths wrench to tighten them. If you can tighten them down until snug do it just don't crank the crap out of them. Either way I would not worry about them. With luck the CASA A-Team will replace them at some point in the next year or two.

Comments: It isn't a 3-4 mile hike. If you stayed just off the highway where a passenger car can go it is only an hour and 15 minutes to the first cliffs. Add 15 to 25 minutes if you go to Tufa City or Marley Wall with a full pack. I say this with the caveat that you have to be in reasonable cardio shape. If you are there for multiple days bring a dry bag and stash your gear so you don't have to carry it every day then the hike is a breeze and unless you have been to Europe the limestone is fantastic and ... more >>

Comments: Despite the dire reports, people I know with 4X4 experience, have driven up this just last week with a two wheel drive truck with locking differential just last week. Come out and help us and the access fund this weekend. No need to drive the road.

Comments: Or, you could up your game until you can lead it Jon. You want to make it leadable for you by adding bolts. You justify this because there are not many cracks in Tucson. If we dumb down every route that many of us are not ready to lead what will the people who want to test themselves have. Please don't give me the "they can just skip the bolts" argument. You were able to TR it. Others can do the same. I don't think anyone would mind if you added lower off anchors. Just be sure and get them in th... more >>

Comments: This route has what a friend refers to as an entrance, fee which is in the form of slightly dubious rock at the crux. Fortunately, it is well bolted but you need to be careful with the big hold at the crux. It definitely flexes and it might hurt your belayer if it hits him.

Comments: Got on this route at Fall 2015 beanfest. It is sort of a bummer the holds at the crux are so small and decomposing but I fell off because I misread the moves. Perhaps this is why I don't spend a ton of time in the Stronghold. The climbing up the first pitch is fun. The thrutching over the first bulge of the second pitch wasn't much fun nor was the crux. The rest of the route was cool and probably makes it worth doing.

Comments: I did the FA of this route with Chris Henze, Cyrena Goodrich and Bob Kerry in '89. We probably did it right after Chris had done Nightstalker or the next day. The route was a single 100' pitch that went up to a big ledge. It had one maybe two bolts on it. I think that guides who needed a TR area added the anchors. I remember putting the smallest TCU at the time, into a horizontal at which point an upset bat started chirping at me. I could not believe he could get into a crevice that narrow. It c... more >>

Comments: This is a much better climb than I remember and well worth doing. I did the FA in a snow storm which may have colored my view of it. It may not be 12+ but it is closer to 12+ than 12-. It could also be that I am in much better shape than when I did the FA. Either way it is worth getting on.

Comments: Interesting perspective Luke. Last time on RM I thought that it seemed much more sustained than I remembered. Yet, if I compare it to Tsunami it is easier but it is 80 feet longer. 12b could work for me which is still in the 12- range of the + plus - minus system as is 5.12. Funny thing about Goliath is that when I did it the route was rated it 13b and I down rated it to 13- in the gudebook after I redpointed it. What's a letter or two among friends.

Comments: This route still hasn't seen a second ascent? I will send hangers to whoever will replace the old bed frame hangers DTH put on it if that will get it repeated.
