i'm planning to spend a few days exploring Cochises in early Jan and don't want to camp. Can anyone recommend a decent but not pricy hotel nearby? Is Pearce the go-to town for the rock climbing? Any recommended routes? up to 5.11+ if not too spicy

If you want to climb on the east side, Pearce is not too far away and there is a motel there. There are also two properties rented by the FS called the Shaw House and Half Moon Ranch. Cochise Stronghold B&B has a couple of different options as well.

Check the classic list for suggested routes on the east side:

If you want to climb on the west side, Tombstone is the closest town that has motels.

The list of classic climbs for the west side is on this page:

Benson may be your best bet for a nearby descent inexpensive motel and a small selection of restaurants:

The East Stronghold has a bed and breakfast located within a couple of miles called:

"And the Horse You Rode in On"

I do not know anything about it.

You might also consider Tombstone (but it is kind of a tourist trap):

I do not know anything about Pearce or Sunsites. Pearce used to be a ghost town:

Let us know what you discover.

Enjoying a rare, clear day on Mt. Sir Donald

I have stayed at 2 of the Forest Service cabins on the east side. They are really nice and will accommodate 4-8 people with stocked kitchens (no food), beds, wood stoves and fire wood. You can walk right from them to climbing areas. Check the USFS Recreation page for availability and ways to reserve them.

The west side is another story. If you stay in Tombstone at the closest lodging you would have to endure the long washboard on Middlemarch road twice a day.

The Half Moon is much nicer than the Shaw House, IMO.

Here's a link to the CS B&B. It is very near the East side developed campground. The Yurt is cool and sleeps up to 10 and the guest rooms are beautiful. The hosts are wonderful and make a mean breakfast.

Cochise Stronghold B&B

Pearce is small but does have couple restaurants and a market. If I recall correctly the motel has about 9 rooms. It's approximately 10 minute drive from Pearce to the East side.

Hope this helps! Have fun!

Trying to redpoint The Ugly 11c; steeper than it looks and the rock is scary in spots but good enough.

In Tombstone I've stayed at Katies Cool Cabins

WE paid $80/nt and it had room for a few folks. Nice quiet place.
