Description

The Coop is the alcove just left (east) of the Bowling Alley, where the majority of the initially developed routes at the Farmhouse were. The Coop features routes ranging from 5.9 to 5.12d. Currently climbing exists on every wall in this jam packed little cove. Routes range from 45 to 85 ft.

Due to the cylindrical nature of The Coop, there are almost always two to three walls in the shade throughout the summer months. Winter will almost certainly mean dark times for this sector as well as the rest of the north walls of the farmhouse. While development is welcome in this area, please contact the existing developers before assuming a project has been completed, or starting a new route.

Getting There

Follow the approach beta on the main page which directs you through the wash and towards the first set of large boulders. At the first set of boulders bust left (east) and follow carins up the low angle toe of the hillside. As the angle steepens, the trail begins switching back and forth across the hillside below the tallest section of the wall. At about two thirds of the way up the incline, cut across the wash and continue switching back several more times toward the base of the Bowling Alley. The final section of trail crosses a small rock outcropping and deposits you in the cholla forest below the bowling alley. The Coop is just around the corner from here.

30 min up, 25 min down.

Please note that the trail is still being developed. It can be hard to find and steep in places. The trail will be improved over time and with additional use.
