This page will be my personal logistical center for the climbing trips we've done to the Stronghold. If you want to submit a proper "Area Page" for the Stronghold & you have some knowledge of the area, you probably should :)
Though we live in Oregon, we've made a few trips down to Cochise Stronghold (score card below). Both road trips (a solid 26 hour push each way...we've done this on a 3-day weekend once or twice...) and outings involving flying into Phoenix. We've had some amazing climbing as well as some amazing disappointments (weather, injuries etc...).
The star ratings below are just our opinion on the relative (within the Stronghold) quality of the various lines. We've never been disappointed with the climbing there.
