Comments: Great climbing, a lot of trickery at the cruxes, needs more traffic, tough for the grade.

Comments: We rappelled in with 1 70 meter rope off of the bolts down below the tree, it worked great. I wonder what the bolted line is off to the left going up the steep face on pitch 2? Good route pitch 3 is very fun interesting face climbing and sustained. The recommended gear in the admin note was right on thanks.

Comments: Great route, a lot of friction and a good mix of other climbing styles make it a full on adventure.

Comments: This is a really good route, we did all 3 pitches, the last pitch is not bad and it is fun to top out the Thumb. A lot of rope drag on the 2nd pitch I probably would bring a couple extra extendable slings next time about 14.

Comments: Did this yesterday, really fun route! The first pitch has some classic wide climbing, the 2nd has a cool roof section leading you up to the tree belay. The 3rd pitch is awesome!

Comments: I am not sure of the status of the blocks right of the crux bolt, I climbed left of the bolt as to not disturb the block, and the moves were pretty thin.

Comments: First route on the Perch, very very good. I agree the climbing is very sustained and physical with lots of "wild" sections. Some awesome chimney climbing and wide crack systems. The 2 slabby sections are very different from the rest. Highly recommend this one!

Comments: This is an outstanding route with some nice technical climbing and good pro. There is a lot of stemming and liebacking after the crux with some wild 5.9 pitches up high.

Comments: One of the wildest and funnest climbs I have ever done. Protection is there but it is a heads up climb with some moves over bulges with pro below you. The chicken heads are amazing!

Comments: Climbed today at the Vista Verde crags with a friend and we had a total blast, what fun climbing. Thanks to everyone who put in all the hard work to develop these climbs! Crackula and Crankenstein were a couple of our favorites.

Comments: Not sure if we got on the correct start the crux blank slab move on the first pitch, I thought was harder than anything I have climbed yet at Cochise, or perhaps equal to Warpaint. I started off the ramp behind the tree and reached over to clip the first bolt high up. I was left of the water streak bolt line that is very close to the right. Any thoughts if I was on the right route?

Comments: Did this climb yesterday and loved it, a really good classic Cochise adventure. With a 70 meter I was able to link pitches 1 and 2 up to the base of the chimney. The chimney was super fun! Moving onto the face was cool and interesting face/corner climbing above. The long traverse right was just awesome and the steep roof moves bomber. We did the normal rap off climbers left into the west gully, did some downclimbing and rappelling to get to the last tree. We did not rap off the tree though... more >>

Comments: I agree with Lee no gear before first bolt worth using anyways, although one of the pockets might take a tricam if you think to bring some. I enjoyed the climbing though, pretty interesting moves.

Comments: One of the best routes I have done at Smith, super classic. The anchor at the base of the 3rd pitch steep dihedral is old an mankey.

Comments: I have not been on many 11b's in the gorge yet but I found the crux move very hard for 11a. I still am not sure what was the best way to do the move as I was able to eek out a sequence 2 different ways, both felt hard for 11a. Great route though!
