Rockfellow Group as seen from the top of Cochise D...
The Rockfellow Group is the crown jewel of Cochise Stronghold.
Comprised of several large domes and spires, the Rockfellow Group hosts many of the areas most classic and stellar routes. The major formations of the Rockfellow Group from north to south are End Pinnacle, Chay Desa Tsay, Rockfellow Dome, and Bastion Towers. Two smaller, more detached spires rise at the south end of the group. Hawk Pinnacle to the west, and Lost Tower to the east.
This entire area is closed seasonally for raptor nesting.
The Rockfellow Group is easy to access from either the east or west. From the east, starting at the boulder in the road, head up the main drainage until it flattens out, head up a side drainage to the left, and then up the slabs until you can make your way to the saddle north of Rockfellow. From the west, follow the Cochise trail for about a mile, then drop into the main drainage. Follow the drainage until you are between Cochise Dome and Rockfellow.

The start is under a house-sized boulder which leans against the End Pinnacle. Beware of possible windy conditions and a shady and possibly very chilly first belay under a large boulder.P1: Start on the slab under the boulder to a small ledge and out to the left to a sickle shape feature and up steep fac...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ

A good anecdote I learned this past weekend is that ironically the Rockfellows are known by local ranchers, artist, and non-climbers as "El Capitan"
