Comments: definitely agree.......great place to take a beginner if youre in the area......i probably wouldnt drive all the way there just for this wall with a noob though. first day i got to tuscon, we drove up mt lemmon and stopped at hitchcock. after rapping from the spire, a hot chick started asking questions, said she always wanted to try climbing. she was a stewardess on vacation with her parents. took her across the road to the practice cliff, she did great, got a phone#, very cool chick.... u... more >>

Comments: awesome arete.....saw this one and had to do it. great climb.......classic. did a nice 11 something or other just to the right of it also that i remember being mixed pro (or i was just being a wuss). and as the front page for the gorge says here......watch those nettles. i never wear shorts and i found out what they were first time i decided to.....damn calves stinging for hours.

Comments: i was just browsing places ive climbed. i remember doing the traverse and john bachars ex gf was there climbing with some dude videoing her for a project. she told me about the fly and i tried it, missed the first time, and then stuck it......i did it repeatedly, and i was barely a 12 climber then. it seemed very easy. i dynoed it like the guy in the vid. i cant believe its rated a v7, or especially a v9. theres no way id have been able to do it, let alone about 7 or 8 times......anyhow, ill tak... more >>

Comments: have this marked off in my guide book, i think it was a runout slab? i think it was the only route i did in this area and remember it being not far from the parking area down a sandy gulley to a split in the trail. bolts and some trad gear.

Comments: my first 12, and onsight. i think i dyno'd the first move to a sloper on a small ledge??? (this is back in 1994) i was having a great day after almost a week of an ingrown toenail giving me grief that killed any climbing i had to do small footwork on. the hotsprings near bishop fixed that....... everything felt easy and i had no clue i was on the right route because the first moves felt simple and the rest of the climb easy and uneventful.......

Comments: definitely remember this one, and it being run out. i was figuring, ok, 5.8 or 5.10 slab, cant be that bad, and it wasnt, except for the pucker factor towards the top with no pro. i think i traversed left a bit and got something small in a crack with a long runner to make myself feel better.......

nice climb, i couldnt find it in swains red rocks select guide book when i was there almost 20 years ago, but it looked cool and very doable so i went for it. pro was good but a bit of fidgeting to get decent placements, and sewed it up pretty good because i was pretty sure i wouldnt want to have tested any single piece by itself......

Comments: 10a-b????? youre kidding me, right?

i took a year and a half of occasional attempts on weekends to finally get this climb back in like 94. i was just breaking into 12s, and ended up with 6 months off from one of the crimpy side pulls on that razor sharp crap that sliced a few deep lines in my finger pads when i peeled off just above the third bolt.....btw, im not sure f there are new bolts but there were only 4 when i did it, and i replaced the bolt and hanger on the second one back then too. d... more >>
