We will spend the night camping in the beautiful Chihuahuan desert of the Dragoon Mountains: amongst yucca, oaks, and grassland. Located near the fabled Tombstone, AZ, campers in Cochise Stronghold will have the opportunity to experience the spectacular desert stars, skies, and sunsets of the region. During the days we will explore some of the world’s best climbing on the limitless granite domes of Southern Arizona. Cochise Stronghold is not only famous for rock climbing, but is also historically valuable because provided refuge to the Chiricahua band of Apaches—and Cochise himself—during the Apache Wars in the late 1800s. Legend has it that his treasure of turquoise is still hidden amongst the rocks! Outdoor Recreation staff will cover lessons in belaying, rock climbing movement and technique, safety, and climbing ethics. The diverse rock features of Cochise Stronghold will allow you to develop your technique in many different styles of climbing movement. This trip is a unique opportunity to visit and climb at one of the best climbing destinations in the Southwest.
