Comments: Hi I will be in Tucson next week and am looking to get out climbing. I have a flexible schedule and would like to get down to Cochise if possible. I am a very competent, yet out of shape climber who would like to stay in the 5.8-5.10 range. I don't mind taking a competent intermediate climber out.

Thanks!
Aaron

Comments: You might be able to use the giant Bigbro, but unless you brought 2-3 of them, it would still be X. There is much more difficult unprotected climbing on the route, so Bigbros in the chimney wouldn't really solve the issue.

Comments: Help! Yesterday (8/28/09) we rapped in from Chasm View and left our packs on Broadway. After the route, my pack was missing and it appears that Marmots dragged it off of Broadway and sent it careening down the Crack of Delight area! I am missing the following:

Blue Granite Gear Pack
Red Marmot sleeping bag in red stuff sack
Yellow Dana Designs shelter
Leki Trekking Pole
Other misc. stuff

We searched for quite awhile down on Mills and could not find more than a couple of random items. Please ca... more >>

Comments: Um.... Harder than Astrodog for sure. Especially considering the complex route finding.

This route is really, really good.

Comments: I'd just like to add that even though this route has possibly the worst approach in the canyon, it is WAY worth doing. If the approach was better, more folks did the route, and a bolt was added on the sketch-arete pitch this thing would be just as good as the scenic cruise (NOT), but with a much better position in the canyon.

FYI we brought the #5 and #6 big cams and used them a bunch.
