That last photo looks like preparation for the screaming belly flop from hell!

Fig bouldering in the Cochise Stronghold.


Dave Baker and I at the base of Cripple Creek on the Pharaoh, early seventies.


Sparsely protected bridging on the FA of Devoid which starts from the north end of the Inner Passage and summits on Chay Desa Tsay. This wild route comes out of the notch shown below on the left and climbs the steep headwall to finish.



Photo from Backcountry Rockclimbing in Southern Arizona, 1991.

..must turn away,
before S-monk,
and others,
draw me back in...
left forever (more or less) in '92.
But I've only been to isolation once,
and it was a new century,
It wouldn't hurt just to go back,
a little
would it?

And while I was there, I could...







Whatever happened to Fig?

Jaybro flash bump - 10 feet away from finding out how friggin' hard and weird Matricide is (filed away under teh "skeletons in the closet" folder.)


Mark on the Tombstone @ Cochise. Can't remember the name.


Arete on the Tombstone. Stiletto Arete I think? Goes up the right skyline of the previous picture.


Ram V. 5 feet of the ground at Middle Earth (Lemmon). Good lines here, though the rock always felt like it was seeping water. Waited out a monster T-Storm underneath The Breeze one day, then hiked out at warp speed over the lightning-rod ridge (2 people ended up drowning in Sabino Canyon during that storm.)


Pusch Peak. A good route by Jeff Mayhew on the thumb in the middle. Lot of untouched choss in the background.


Best for last - Mendoza Canyon. Meg on pitch 2, realizing that Elephantiasis is as serious as we thought it would be. Outstanding route, probably the best thing I climbed in my 2 years in Tucson. Runners-up would be Brian Benedon's routes in Pima Canyon and Table Mtn.
