This area is less than a minute from the Coop and has potential for several longer, good-quality lines. To get to the Alley, follow the short trail uphill from the Coop toward the large, obvious slot. Summits in this area provide a great vantage point for folks climbing on the Coop.

Featured Route For The Alley
Rock Climbing Photo: Geir on the FA of Javelina Hardman

Javelina Hardman 5.10+ 6b+ 21 VII+ 20 E3 5b  Arizona : Central Arizona : ... : The Alley
Start by stemming up to a bolt approx 15' up. Clip it and figure out a tricky move to establish yourself on the face (5.10+). Head straight up toward the bulge placing gear and clipping a bolt. Pull the bulge and continue to the anchor. With its great rock and climbing this route would easily earn three stars in LDE except that it doesn't top out on one of the large towers and it is relatively short. Still, it's great fun and a solid challenge for a well-rounded climber....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona

Consider staging/leaving packs at the Coop, especially if heading back to Javelina Hardman, as it is a much larger area than the latter.
