We ticked a bucket list item with a road trip to Cochise Stronghold in September. Much planning went into this trip which mostly involved finding someone to take care of our very bad crag dogs and our horses for 10 days.
After a couple of days at Isle of You, we relocated to Sheepshead area, which is one of the main bivy spots with best access to Sheepshead formation and many superb multipitch trad routes.
Sheepshead camp shared with Bessie, A.K.A. #72.
We decided to try Ewephoria, a 5 pitch 5.8 which takes the left skyline of the prominent Sheepshead formation, seen here in the upper right quadrant of the photo.
