So stoked this book is out. My family and I will be out in the Stronghold Feb 28th thru Mar 5th. Looking forward to meeting you and getting your book. Thanks again for getting this info out to climbers. Looking forward to seeing new (to me) areas of the Dragoon mountains. Here is an East side picture.

Ok here is a West Side picture of some rock that looked very climbable. Maybe it will be in the book. It is a bit north of the Slavin Gulch trail head. Anyways, thanks again.

Is the the Scott Ayres product of a few years ago?

And if not, does it at least give name to all the "unknown" and "unnamed" routes on the Sheephead and environs that were his handiwork?

This book was designed, written, climbed and mostly photographed by me- Tanya Bok.

But it was not just me. Others came to my side to see it through and I will forever be grateful. They beta tested, photographed, posed for photos, submitted route information, hiked, climbed, edited, and re-edited. They contributed stories, historical photos, and wisdom.

So this book is the product of the love for the area.

All your favorite routes now have names and many more to fill your next trip.

Sounds good to me... I'm tired of ticking all those unknowns! Just bagged another one last week! (Unknown left of Peacemaker just does not have the gravitas of a real name!)

Great pic by the way... looks like you are pretty happy to have the product in your hand.

Hi Tanya,

thanks for all your hard work. Just to clarify, is this book just the west side? If so what would be the borderline so to speak since some areas can be accessed from either side? Thanks.

The West Side is Sheepshead to Squaretop and the East Side is Zappa Dome to Cochise Dome.

The book is gorgeous with beautiful photos, detailed topos, and tons of information. I definitely recommend that all local and visiting Cochise climbers pick up a copy. Well done Tanya.

Bump for the best Cochise Stronghold guidebook ever written.

@cochiseclimbing I'm way overdue for a trip there. We gotta get our sweet little baby (!) to survive a couple more years before we can leave her with gramma and make at least a weeklong trip back to your neighborhood.

Great guidebook! The approach and route descriptions are right on the money. We had a blast at Headline Dome on the backside of the Sheepshead yesterday. We rapped in on Extra Extra, climbed P1 of The End of An Era, P1 of Read All About It and climbed out on Extra Extra. Thanks for all the hard work. Attached is a pic of Mike Leonard leading P1 of End of an Era
