Meantime, they offered me a job at Big Nose Kate's Saloon.

Mooselips, you do know that you have to pay for a blow job, right?

BLUE, that would depend who is "blowing", no?

It gets cold out there. I have a couple stories I wonít bore anybody with here.

The bolting stuff is always fun to jump into, no?

I donít agree itís immediately a travesty to bolt next to cracks.

I only hope Moose is enjoying a juicy slab of black anus.

Cavemonkey, I understand, you are just jealous
you are missing all the fun.

Go climbing, like I do, you will feel relaxed, at ease,

Best to you,

What is with the flats?

Bolt next to crack?

Cats and dogs living together?








Looks like a good time, except for killer bees.

So nice to run into you all yesterday! Glad you were able to get your tire fixed while we all got to climb.
I guess I will be a little biased when I answer YES! to the initial question of "Is Cochise Worth My Time?". There are now almost 1000 routes documented and most of them are multi pitch. There are enough climbs in every style and risk factor to keep every climber happy. The weather is just cooling off and the endless blue sky means you will have to take forced rest days instead of rain days just to recover from all the mileage you can get under your belt.

Long day today.

First we climbed The Climb Too Tough To Die, then Ewphoria with a new buddy, John. (I climbed Ewphoria last Friday with Jon, but after we climbed TTTD, we were hungry for more). We swapped leads on TTTD, but I pulled a muscle, so John led the whole Ewphoria. TTTD was an another excellent route.

Hey Ionlyski, good to climb with you in Josh a couple of years ago. Still looking forward to seeing you in Montana one of these days. Hope you and the family are doing well.

Moose thinking of heading to the coast for Porcini next week. Give me a call when you get back and we'll make it happen. Timing should be just right.

One of the best places ever. I can't wait to get down there again. Please, everyone: Keep it clean! Pack out/burn your TP. Pick up after others--even their TP streamers. I've done this. If we can't keep it together, regulation, fees, camping limits will come. Please, preserve one of the last great hangs.

The old "I pulled a muscle" excuse to get out of swinging leads? Again? Which muscle THIS TIME?

Don't try this one on me! I have a long memory for Moosetricks!

P.S. I am stuck in Tempe AZ spreading cedar chips in Daughter's backyard in preparation for her wedding. But I had a great time climbing in NW Arizona's boonies with Los Ancianos Decrepitos - and the fun with them continues after the wedding.

Terry, it's my left boob. Looks pretty serious. I think I tore something.

Btw, what tricks I pulled???
