Enjoying 'Ground Affects'.
Upon realizing admins can add guidebooks I added Squeezing The Lemmon II. I will likely add more guidebooks (both in and out of print) as time allows. Guidebooks are now recursively added to sub- and meta- sections due to a code fix implemented by Nick Wilder.

Removed 'Grade V' from the routes at Ireland. This is the alpine climbing grade not the free climbing grade. Grade V means "Requires a day and a half; the hardest pitch is usually 5.8 or harder".

Removed a discussion under Cozzetti Steps Out per the originator's request. In general I prefer to not meddle in arbitrating discussions, especially in this instance where the conversation was civil and informative.

Yeah, I almost asked to have that conversation left up as it was on a route that is in an area which will be visited by many new climbers who could have read the discussion and gained an understanding of that topic.

Personally, I have gained a good understanding of many local climbing topics by reading similar "threads" that were in the comments section for a particular climb. I also see how this is "clutter," but I think that clutter is sometimes full of valuable info.

Oh well.

Thanks for all of your work, transparency, and responsiveness!

A steep climb too.
Yeah, it's entertainment if nothing else.

  • Updated four links under Cochise Stronghold to reflect web address changes at Toofast Topos.

If you are inclined please review the changes and offer comments publicly or privately. Is the breakdown logical? Does it add clarity?

Thanks!

Sorted the The Ravens area of Mount Lemmon. The routes are now roughly sorted from Raven A to Raven D. The ordering remains imperfect due to multiple aspects and features. If you have any corrections or suggestions please share.

Added four guidebooks
  • Backcountry Rockclimbing in Southern Arizona
  • Climbers Guide to Sabino Canyon and Mount Lemmon Highway
  • Isolation Canyon Climbing Guide
  • Jacks Canyon Sport Climbing

I additionally sorted the remaining routes at Jacks Canyon.

Broke Green Slabs Area into two sections: Green Acres (North Face) and Green Slabs (South Face). Wrote descriptions for the new subsections; relocated and sorted the routes.

I mistakenly deleted Missing the Action thinking it was identical to Missing in Action. Apparently they are different routes. In my defense the descriptions were nearly identical. I apologize.

The layout of this crag is a bit of mystery. Hence any insight would be appreciated. Post up comments here in the forum or message me. I am also willing to reassign the area if someone wants to write a better description.

Renamed Rivendell. While it is listed as Rivendale in Squeezing The Lemmon II, I believe this is a typo. The Lord Of The Rings and a comment from the main developer suggest the spelling is Rivendell. Please correct me if I am mistaken.

I broke Big Pine Towers into two sections and reassigned them. Breaking the main area into two sections makes sense as, if memory serves, it is difficult to switch between the two sides. I kept the sections at the same level rather than making them subsections to avoid too many levels. That said I can see the arguments for all combinations.

From the description it sounds like Labor Daze belongs on the West Face. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Big Pine Towers - East Face
Big Pine Towers - West Face

I updated Schroedinger's Cat to be 'Sport' and added the FA information.

Thanks to the community for the suggestions and corrections.
