Comments: This route is committing; I would suggest a PG13 rating. Small horizontal cam placements down low lead to heady climbing with some hollow sounding rock beneath the crux bulge.

Comments: Yeah Marcy was pretty bold climbing up there with no large cams at all. She did a great job finding small gear instead. Pretty darn fun stuff, the whole pitch went with just one bolt.

Comments: Greg,

I bothered with the two bolts so that I wouldn't die on the ground up FA. Other than that, I think you're right on the mark.

This route would require so much cleaning to make it safe that I'd just be manufacturing a route. It would be much better to take it down then leave a legacy like that behind. I'll be happy to remove it the next time I'm up there.

Comments: Thanks all for your insights and willingness to sort through this stuff. Also thanks Aaron for cleaning the death blocks off this route as it definitely made it safer to go up this way.

Comments: I did this face to the top on gear. I agree it was definitely very spicy where the bolts are now. I liked the route but since it was done previously on gear the bolts should probably be removed.

Comments: By "fabricate" what do you mean, Todd? Do you mean chiseling and using glue? Or are you referencing setting the route on TR and rap bolting?

If it's the latter I am sure nobody will spit on your car. The former could cause problems for us ... I doubt land managers would be psyched to read about climbers doing this (even on chossy rock) and then boasting about it.

Could you clarify what you are talking about?

Comments: This is a beautiful peak. The approach trail was well defined and not at all hard to follow. The hill on the second half is long and the trail is a bit loose in places.

Comments: This is a neat spot and definitely worth the trip in my opinion. We hiked up there in just over an hour and it was really not a bad approach. I liked the old-school backcountry trad style. Thanks Jeff!

Comments: Lol guys. I think the coiling is a type of daisy chaining.

I would like to encourage folks to bring two ropes in Cochise unless you have got the place totally dialed. A haul line makes a huge difference if you need to bail (or worse have to self rescue). Those single rope descents are convenient but can lull people into dicey habits. Keep in mind that it is not just your well being that is at stake. If you epic people are going to worry, and other people might need to put themselves in h... more >>
