Location: Arizona > Southern Arizona > Cochise Stronghold

Comments: I was thinking I would come and climb in the west stronghold near the end of march and stay for a week, culminating the trip with a visit to levithan dome and the surrounding area in the santa catalinas. What is the temp at these areas that time of year, is it possible to climb in cochise? levithan? I have the backcountry guide and I was wondering if any other route development/upkeep of anchors/protection bolts on levithan has happened since the printing of that book? thanks folks

Comments: Actually, the bolts in question that were chopped were not on the horn, but on the roof (5.7), and mike didnt chop them Mark "ron don snake bite" Clark did the chopping and I smoked a joint.

Comments: from the top of the second pitch you can keep going up via Raven Crack at stiff 5.9, its the obvious corner system with a fixed nut at about halfway.

Comments: lee, have you ever had the chance to do the 8+/9- variation?
from the third pitch anchor move left after the flake and move up
under the overlap left of the 5.7. clip a bolt on the edge of the
overlap and make an awkward matle/rockover move. climb up and right to a two bolt anchor even with the last pitch's tree anchor......

Comments: shell pond is really overlooked, there are some good ice routes there in the winter too, at one point there was a article in "Climbing" that talked about "the secret crags of maine" and it listed a topo.....

Comments: it should be know to keep continuity with ed webster's guide and the other guides that this area is considered "the south buttress"......

Comments: its pretty important to add that even if you are a 5.10 climber the moves to acess the crack are mandatory 5.7 unprotected, there is however a small slot on the traverse ledge that can take a small tri
cam in a horizontal but use caution as even if you do fall above that piece you are looking at a ledge fall.

Comments: Doubles are a really good idea on this route as after the crux bolts the route jogs down and left a bit. If using one rope, bring a long runner to prevent rope drag on the gear placed above the bolts. This piece is also a must to protect your second from swinging thirty feet or so if he/she blows the moves after the bolts.
