Climbing in Cochise Stronghold

I just returned home from an adventure climbing in Cochise Stronghold with a NOLS alumni trip. I met some truly amazing people and got to spend time in one of the most beautiful places. I never thought I would like the desert as much as I did, but I fell in love. We had 5 days of amazing weather, which was a welcome break from winter. I gained a lot of valuable climbing experience and cannot wait to out and climb more this summer. If you like to climb then I would highly recommend Cochise Stronghold, AZ as a destination. In addition to several fun multi-pitch days there are lots of great single pitch days to be had and good camping and running too. Excellent place for an adventurous vacation!


  1. YEah, Jamie! So you went for an alumni trip??! nice. I'm about to embark on an adventure-- three weeks backpacking in the Gila Wilderness in New Mexico, and then a week climbing in Cochise! Doing the Southwest IC... wish you were gonna be on it too. But I'll be thinking of you !

    Hope all is well.


  2. Hey Kiddo! Nice going. Sure wish I were young again and had the opportunity to try climbing. Remember you have relatives in Colorado & Arizona..
