Re: Cathedral rope

@Pivo Nope. I’ve somehow never seen them in the Catalinas. The closest to Tucson I’ve seen them is in the Silverbells.

Re: Cathedral rope

FWIW, I was just up there yesterday and both the rope to the inner sanctum and the rope to the summit appear to be in usable condition with adequate anchors. I didn't use either rope but inspected them during my free ascents so that I felt comfortable having my hiking partner use them (I'm the stron...

I saw a summit log from Valentine's Day, 1991. I'm not sure if they would still keep up with the tradition given that the peak, by my estimation, falls within the bighorn sheep closure.

It's a good adventure. Just be comfortable with 4th class climbing and evaluating crumbly rocks. The objective hazards are a little high on the route I took.

Valentine Peak, Santa Catalinas

I use the Peakbagger app and have noticed a named point, Valentine Peak, up Pima Canyon (https://www.peakbagger.com/peak.aspx?pid=84807). A quick google search and a search of this site tell me nothing about it. Can anyone tell me where the name came from? Does anyone know of a "standard" route? I m...

Re: The 2019!! Cyclical totals discussion thread.

Are people hiking as much but logging less? Are they hiking less, period? Are they still hiking the events, but trimming the trainers? These, I wonder. Is it more that the instagramification of out society is leading to more selfies on summits, and less written logs? Perhaps, we'll never know. In m...

Does this point have a name?

I look at this point every day from my house, and today I hiked up to the top of it. But I don't know what it's called. Does anyone know if it has a name?

Re: Jawline Traverse

Thanks! I love to get out and explore the spots right in my backyard where few have been before. The front range of the Catalinas is so beautiful! Those towers look grand. Even Cathedral is a worthy objective that I can't imagine gets all that many visitors each year. I need to get back up there!

Yesterday I traversed some of the peaks north of Table Mountain on the western flanks of Pima Canyon (see attached map), ending on Table Tooth before bush whacking back down. I am curious on a couple of points: 1) Do these points have a collective name (I've Googled and found one reference to them b...
