Comments: Nice work Jimbo! This route is very thin and technical. I had plenty of time to appreciate the route while hanging all over it.

Comments: I haven't climbed this route in a year or two but my records show 13 bolts to chains; no midpoint anchor. Perhaps you climbed a different route? See the topos here.

Comments: This page has been updated to reflect the new approach. This approach was made possible due to the efforts of the Access Fund, 6 local climbing organizations, and many volunteers.

If anyone wants to improve upon this page, submit a page improvement or I can reassign ownership.

Comments: I believe the FA is Tanya Bok & Scott Ayers. You can confirm by contacting her at cochiseclimbing.com. My notes indicate 5.9 mixed but I have a vague recollection of there being two routes on this formation.

Comments: Thanks for the response and thanks for looking at the route again. I can get behind cleaning the route and will try to work on it next time I'm out there. That said this route in particular and this wall in general are not a high priority for me at this time.

Comments: Have you climbed the route, Jim? Since you have lots of experience with new routing and this wall, your opinion carries weight with me. I gave this line three lead attempts this past weekend and felt safe. While the route would definitely benefit from some cleaning it wasn't the complete pile I had been led to believe.

Comments: My personal opinion is that marking every hold is overkill and detracts from the experience. It removes the problem solving component that separates outdoor climbing from the gym. It also suggests that there is only one solution. In my opinion beta photos should serve to orient while action photos should serve to excite.

Comments: My understanding is that this route lacks anchors. If anchors were added would it be possible to lower with a 60m? 70m? Seems like it would be possibly if one would clipped into the rope. I have not climbed or even looked at this line but I am interested and lazy.

Comments: An interesting, albeit short route. Edge and crimp past two bolts to a large ledge that provides a full rest. For the next 20 feet follow a seam using sidepulls, gastons, and crimps. The route relents just before the chains. I personally found the crux sequence worthy and the climbing full value. The route overhangs 2 feet in 45 feet of climbing.

Use care when clipping the 4th and 5th bolts as a botched clip might result in hitting the ledge. I couldn't determine whether my nervousness cl... more >>

Comments: Sorted and named the routes according to Todd Swain's page. Please let me know if corrections need to be made. Additionally if anyone knows the true route names and FAs I can update the listings.

Comments: While I agree that the crux is down low, the climbing seemed fairly sustained. Perhaps it depends on how far one wanders from the bolt line? I personally found the route to be enjoyable albeit short and a bit sharp.

Comments: It has been a while but I believe you can get to the base in two rappels. From Nang rappel to the anchors of My Mother The Rock and then rappel to the ground.

Upon rereading your comment you also needed to clean gear. To do that easily requires two ropes or someone to follow the route.

Comments: I believe I saw a bolt or two above the anchors of this route. I didn't look closely but there might be a second pitch. It looked fairly lichen-filled.

Comments: A classic route by any standard that should be on every 5.12- climber's to-do list.

The route sees shade starting around noon.

Comments: I personally found the movement enjoyable and the rock as solid as any of the sandstone in the canyon. The only fault I see is that the route is not sustained. The crux is substantially harder than the rest of the route.

Comments: Ankles away! Use caution as the crux sequence comes between the first and second bolts after the ledge. I sprained my ankle after falling here and hitting the ledge.

The route I climbed was entirely sport and finished on the anchors of West Face Direct. The climbing was mostly 5.10 with hard sequences at the start and above the ledge.
