Description

This is a wonderful crag perched high above the free camping area as one enters into the Cochise Stronghold valley. A shortish approach, stunning views of the surrounding countryside, fun lines, a large, flat base, and nice sun/shade exposure make this an excellent crag to put on your tick list. Most of the lines are sport, although a few trad routes do exist.

  • 16 routes
  • The routes range from 1 to 3 pitches -- many of the multipitch routes can be strung together with good sling use, making some mega long leads.
  • The sport routes are well bolted with chain anchors.
  • Angle varies from typical slab paddling to overhanging pumpfests.
  • Grades range from 5.5 to a couple of 5.12-5.13 open projects.
If you are looking for another sport crag like Zappa, Isle of Ewe, Sweet Rock, etc.; this is an excellent choice!

This crag sees sun until around 12-1pm.

Getting There

Take FS4809 (first or second right after passing the FS signage and trash cans) for about 1/4 mile, passing a few excellent free campsites. Find a parking spot near where the road curves due west. The trail starts next to a big boulder and an oak tree. You will first parallel the cliff face without gaining much elevation. After passing a few metates, you will run into a small slab of rock where you will turn left at it's apex; this is probably the most likely place to get off trail by continuing on too far east. After the turn, many cairns will turn up, weaving up the rocky-hillside on the left side of the crag. The trail deposits you right at the base of the Big Lebowski (5.9).
