Overview of Hands Canyon from fixed wing aircraft.  Golden Buttress noted.  Almost every free-standing spire in this photo has been climbed.  I encourage you to hike up the drainage and explore.  You will find many bolted faces and climbed cracks that are awaiting 2nd ascents. If you see fixed gear, rest assured there will be a bolted rap route or walk-off.  Bring slings to leave on rap bolts (they often lack rings or chains).  Enjoy the adventure!

Comments: Ditto above comment. You've got the African Serengeti sunset in front and killer Cochise landscape behind. We are soo lucky!

Comments: Hey Jimbo,
Yep, truly a shame at the Druid and some parts of the Stronghold. I'd rather not think about it as it makes me sick. We really need to ask ourselves before we drill, "does this route add to the quality of the crag, or is there a different reason I'm tempted to begin drilling". I'd say most serial drillers have other reasons in mind.

But we've been through all this before and what's done is done. No use getting upset over it again. I'll try my best to forget about it.

I did en... more >>

Comments: One pitch from bottom to top no problem with 60m. Plenty of pro and 5 bolts en route. Hangerless bolt now has nice hanger.

When I first did it c. 5 years ago I only remember two bolts low on the route. Was one added or is my memory fading? It's not needed and next to a crack that takes gear. 5.7 and safe.

VERY fun pitch, one of the best 5.7 on the mtn. Thanks EFR.

Comments: It's really too bad the first pitch of this route is "bracketed" by bolts. Hotshot's first pitch is what, 3 feet to the left? Nice. Slingwalker should have served as the approach pitch to the upper pitches of Hotshot, which is off to the left.

As a result, the first pitch of Slingwalker, which existed before its neighbors, is somewhat lost in obscurity. As in, "oh there's a bolt, I better not go that way. Oh there's another bolt, can't head that way either". Now, what was once a line th... more >>

Comments: Looking for a little beta here.

Comming in from the left does one use the underside of the roof as a layback, or the crack where the roof meets the slab? I started using the little crack but thought it was a bit easier standing up and unclinging the underside of the roof, however that requires blind groping.

Climbing directly straight up to the right side of the roof looks much harder than traversing in from upper left.

Was there a pin under the roof in the past? Small TCUs are a chore to... more >>

Comments: A fun route. Good for learning about multi-pitch climbs. Hike in is easy and hike down from top steep, grassy, and slabby but manageable.

Not as much lichen as one might expect given its name. HUGE views.

Comments: This ascent was a classic case of, "Were we off route or did we climb a new route?".

The west face of Elephant Head is large and complex. I believe no two parties will ever climb the exact same variation...even if the same party climbs it twice, they will not follow the same route.

Nevertheless, this formation is a fun little punter's peak. Get out there and get lost on this face!
