This route is just left of Coati Corner.


It is not quite as good as Coati Corner, but it means you now have two good pitches to do if you get down early. This climb was drilled ground up with a few hook placements or dubious cams used so we could haul the drill up. Then we each lead it to get the first and second free ascents. The crux fifteen feet below me takes balance then power as the feet go away for a move or two on pockets.

This is a sport route with anchors for lowering. Jun 12, 2006
We went back and climbed this route again, after a couple of Flagstaff lads claimed it was only 5.10d.
While a can't agree with the .10d I will say it's no harder than 5.11a.
So we were having a bad day, we did drill it ground up.....maybe we were tired after lugging the drill??? Apr 4, 2007

This is an excellent and engaging pitch! Warpaint, Coati, and Ringtail makes for a very memorable day of stellar climbing. Mar 24, 2009

Onsight ascent.

This route continues the fine tradition of Cochise Sandbagging. From the ground, the route looks insignificant and easy. It is neither. Nice route. Jan 19, 2011

Wow. I truely sucked on this 10d, but I usually don't have problems on 10c. This took me over an hour and maybe 10 "takes" (wimpy falls). Don't under-estimate this. It looked easy. (I wasn't willing to take a real ripper off the impressively sharp crystals my finger were on at any point.) Very humbling, but technically cool moves. Apr 21, 2012
