Back before gyms, this is where Tucsonans learned or practiced climbing.










Still a great spot to get a quick pump and watch the sunset.

My memory is...Obscured By Clouds...$$$$LOL

Before the land was developed and we lost access, the Campbell Cliffs were the heart of the Tucson bouldering training scene. Perfect little spot.

Bob Murray and Frank Abel were out seeking boulders but they didn't have much company BITD.

One of the most amazing things about climbing in Arizona is the solitude. I was at a tremendous sport climbing area on Saturday with not a soul in sight. Supposedly this is normal for this area. I also get to climb world-class cracks at The Waterfall while rarely seeing other parties. Over a hundred classic cracks all to ourselves.

What is the situation out at the Cwm these days? Anyone climbed there recently?

The best 5.8 handcrack in a corner in AZ is out there. It's A Beautiful Day!

Hey Steve, after 25 years of nobody going there one of our local developers added maybe 10 new quality routes to the south side last year. I believe they are on mtn proj under Volunteer Canyon. No new action on the sunny side but It's a Beautiful Day and Trafalmador stand the test of time for sure, especially at their respective grades, 5.8 and 9+.

Sorry I missed the sushifest; thailand was a nice alternative. When I returned I found a lot of old photos. This is me leading the big roof on Granite Mtn with Jay Anderson belaying; unfortunately, due to four 90 degree turns, I fell all over the final moves.
