Comments: Snake Dike is overrun with climbers. On a cool dry weekend expect to see 20 parties attempting the route. The traffic jams are caused by the leader traversing under the roof on the first pitch and creating a pendulum for the often less experienced follower. Climb straight up to the left side of the roof and use the small tree for protection. Supertopo is wrong! Climbing under the roof is terrible beta and creates more traffic jams on an already crowded route. This route is mostly 5.3 with a... more >>

Comments: Five bee stings and had to down climb. It was the one pitch we were going to try in Cochise while driving by. Not a good first impression.

Comments: Thanks Drew psyched you had a good time. Lot's of people have put a lot of work into the place. Hopefully we can get the trail better marked in the future the cairns seem to get knocked down by the cows. Lalo told us you were there.

Comments: Thanks Jack. I climbed it the other day and somewhere around there seemed more appropriate. Check out the Cumbia Cave if you get a chance we go every weekend down there this winter

Comments: The routes at bottom of the Stream wall around the corner on the 100 foot North facing wall are easier accessed from Horseshoe Lake. Hike around the lake until you reach the Horseshoe Slabs. Hike up and left around the slabs on a well traveled trail and leave that trail when you see the 100 foot wall. This is easier and creates less erosion then hiking down from the Upper Stream wall

Comments: Just a comment on the anchors on the second pitch where the ledge is. The rock is kind of hollow and fractured there. You wouldn't be opposed if someone moved the anchors over on more solid rock?
