Comments: This is a spectacular route - certainly one of the best I've done in Cochise. Raines is correct that the description for pitch 5 is wrong. You definitely don't want to step back right. In fact, it's important to know that you're going to head for the left of the two cracks; the right system actually seems more obvious since it's an extension of the system that you'll already be in. I also agree with Raines that it's best, on pitch 3, to simply bust out left onto the face from just above the ... more >>

Comments: This is actually a real good line, even if it is half a route ;). Not a single crimp through the hard stuff and 15' of awesome 10/11 crack climbing afterwards to savor your send on. Though I think the line would climb less well and be substantially harder without the glued holds I'm fairly certain it would go without them... Either way, its a worthy line and if you've spent any time bouldering you shouldn't let the rating scare you.

Comments: If anyone happens to climb this soon my shirt/sweater is (or was) stuck on the first pitch. Threw them down after the second and didn't quite clear the formation. If you find them and want to get em' back to me I'd be stoked!

Comments: Mitch, coming from a crusher like you that means a lot! Thanks! Anyways, I think this really is one of those routes that can feel much harder than it needs to be, simply because the (easy) crux beta is somewhat non-obvious. In other news, I heard it through the grapevine that someone finally pulled one of those scary blocks off down low (Megas?). There is some potentially sketchy rock in the first ~15 feet, so (for anyone else looking to get on it) be mindful and try to climb around the detached... more >>
