What are the "must do" routes at Mt. Lemmon and Cochise Stronghold in the 5.9-5.11 range? You know, the routes that, if you were to miss them, people would think you really haven't visited the area.

There's plenty of 1 pitch routes on Lemmon. I'd say just about everything on chimney rock is really good. Single Lens Reflex, Fiutt, Crow's Nest, Mistaken Identity. All trad. Mean Mistreater. Lots of good sport at Windy Point.

At Cochise, there's Days of Future, Abracadaver (coolest route in the world), Forest Lawn, Beeline, Absinthe of Mallet. Lots more I haven't done yet.

Hunchback Arete on the Hunchback Pinnacle at Windy Point. (In the old guidebook, it may have another name.) 5.11. One of the most photogenic & fun routes anywhere! Position a photographer on the road overlooking the pinnacle and you can get a great picture of the climber ascending the arete with nothing behind him except Tuscon in the distance.
