I climbed with the Purdue club quit a bit back in the day. They have always been a good bunch. Miss those guys and girls. Stairs are a great idea. I don't see any trade off.

Wow, looks great! I guess I can just find out when I go out there climbing again, but where is this new, main trail located? Maybe I missed another post that already said, but I'm too lazy to check.

It spits you out at the Valley floor across from the trailhead to the Stadium. I believe the start of it will be somewhere on your left as you go downhill towards the switchbacks from the parking lot but that's subject to change.

Looks great!! I remember looking down that drop-off last fall when crawling, scouting out the newly carved trail and imagining the stairs job ahead. Leave it to Purdue,,school of engineering I trust was involved in this effort?? Nice nice work! And for those who haven't seen the new trail, it is so very user friendly and scenic, through the woods. Cool and comfy in the summer, even a bit drier in a light rain too I suppose. Nice work guys!!

Does anyone know anything about I'll be living in SE Arizona near the Santa Catalina mtns, Mt. Lemmon, near Summerhaven. I was hoping someone could save me some time & point me to the good sport crags. Thanks.
