sounds good, what you are writing in the overview!! Sounds as if I should go there .... desert adventure .... hmm, have not tried it yet ... but isn't that too hot?? You know, I prefer ice climbing, and even on glaciers, I were sometimes so warm although I wore only a t-shirt ... can't image what I should wear climbing in the desert ... ;o))
Well, but after I have read your page, hm, I still have a lot of questions:
could use more routes and ned to put when to do it. I could not imagine doing it in the dead of summer. It looks more like a winter climb when the temperature is cooler. what months are best to get away from the heat and is it ever to cold to hike it?
This page needs a lot of work. Has the maintainer climbed it?
The overview needs to be expanded upon.
Other climbs need to be researched.
What is the standard route?
Any more red tape? Forest Service?
Links to trip reports/beta on the web?
What are the conditions like in late Dec.?
Rpc, you heading down to the dome? I was thinking of climbing that one myself. Let me know, otherwise I have to train my ladyfriend, who climbs 5.6 at the gym and wonders, "but how do they get the ropes up there?"
sorry - did not notice your post till now. Unfortunately no plans right now to head back down to AZ (wish we could do that though given the extra sh..ty weather here in Oregon :)
It does look like a fun climb!
Good improvements...congrats on your adoption. :-)
Thanks! And with all of my exploring, I had no idea this area was so close to Tucson. It's pretty well hidden....
There is guidebook online for this area at
If you need a lot of hand-holding this is not the place for you.
