Ahhh – the Dragoons! Here a climber may explore vast possibilities for satisfying vertical adventure in a uniquely beautiful southern Arizona setting. Few climbers know the spectacular classic lines, and the quiet nooks and crannies of this wonderful place as well as Tanya Bok and Scott Ayers. Their forthcoming book The Best of the Cochise Stronghold: Rock Climbing, is destined to be a classic in its own right. I look forward to it.

This website has been created so I can share with you my 30 years of Cochise Stronghold knowledge with you. I have been lucky enough to climb all over the world and establish many routes not only in the Stronghold but also the Owens River Gorge, the High Sierra, and Canadian Rockies. However, the Stronghold is home and I cherish this place. Every weekend I see more and more people wanting to explore it. I want to make your climbing days adventures, not epics. This website has been created to give you first hand information on the area and its climbs so you may have as much fun as I have playing in this beautiful and magical area.
