Comments: I updated the 'Description' and 'Getting There' sections. I also filled in the missing FA information. Let me know if changes or additions need to be made.

Additionally let me know if you would like to improve other Southern Arizona areas -- I can reassign ownership. I believe parking and trailhead information / photos are incredibly useful. I also am interested in shade and cell reception details.

Comments: Four years later and you are still spouting nonsense. The below photo was taken at the intersection of Kino & I-10, which is well within Tucson city limits. It clearly slows Baboquivari and Kitt Peak. Mendoza Canyon is somewhere near Kitt Peak but hard to make out in this crappy cell phone photo.

Comments: I always use shoulder length slings at the chains to make cleaning easier, reduce rope drag when lowering, and limit wear on quickdraws. Usually it doesn't make much of a difference; however, in this instance I believe it worked to my advantage. If memory serves I was able to clip the chains lower off a sloper before doing the last moves.

Comments: Four months after my question, I finally climbed this route. Metro features mostly big holds over solid rock. The only thing keeping this great line from being classic are the multiple ledges which detract from the flow.

This 105ft route consists of 14 bolts to two sets of fixed anchors. At least 4 alpine draws with shoulder length slings are recommended to reduce rope drag as the route wanders. An older, more easily accessible, recessed pair of anchor bolts is found at the top of ... more >>

Comments: Updated posted rating to 5.10+ to mirror the consensus and guidebook rating. Also reduced the length from 90ft to 50ft.

Comments: Daniel Siegel, sounds like you climbed the last pitch of Days of Future Passed. Endgame finishes to the right. See Toofast Topos' free topo or pick up the guidebook for more information. Both finishes are about the same grade but as you noted, the Days Of Future Past finish is far spicier.

Comments: While I have not climbed this route, it definitely sounds like "The Stand" as listed in Backcountry Rockclimbing in Southern Arizona by Bob Kerry. Why not label it as such? Thanks for posting it up.

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 >>
