Paul Davidson and Steve Grossman are two of the stoutest leaders I've ever seen.

Tried to get down to Cochise this last winter, but cold, stormy weather shut us down. We'll try again this year. AZ is fantastic.

Home of the Banditos!

I just added a bit to Paul's post on MP about Lucky Goes to the Creamery.

Yup, Jim was a very good man and an asset to the Tucson climbing community that left us much too soon. There was a memorial service for him a short while ago.

Oh my gosh no. I climbed extensively with Jim for several years but lost touch after I left AZ.

Such a fun partner and great guy...so full of life it's hard to believe.

And bump.

Hey all, I'm stopping by Tucson for a few days in early December and am hoping to get out and climb. If any of you fine folks are out for a boulder session or cragging some place and wouldn't mind some company, I'd be very happy to join you. I'd be happy to show you around Squamish when you make your way up north.

I will have a rental car and likely be climbing on Tuesday, Dec. 6th, and Wednesday, the 7th.

Also, any suggestions would be much appreciated for a nice intro circuit to Mt. Lemmon bouldering.

Thanks all!

For those of you that like Zappa, Dweezil and company are playing the Rialto Theater in Tucson on Friday May 5 and the Orpheum in Flagstaff on Friday August 11. Check it out because It Can Happen Here! Who would imagine?!?

Tucson area folks don't miss Jim Donini's Latok show at the Summit Hut on November 15. If you are interested in the deeper game of climbing then you have to come and check this out. Great show and a chance to meet Maestro Donini and get a hit of him.

The definitive Toofast Topos II guidebook to the Cochise Stronghold will be available in a matter of days. Well done Geir!
http://www.supertopo.com/climbers-forum/3131396/Toofast-Topos-2-Cochise-Stronghold-Rock-Climbing
Geir and the rest of the new generation of Tucson Tigers have repeated all of the old testpieces and replaced their fixed anchors so that interested climbers can focus on the spicy and not worry about the dicey, bolts that is. These proud routes saw little action for a couple of decades but are being done regularly now by folks that appreciate full value adventure climbing just like we did. The descriptions in Geir's guidebook accurately reflect these ascents and carry forward the traditional approach that made this amazing area stand out.

Steve:

Ya gotta love it when the new school fully integrates the fundamental integrity of the OG visionaries!
