Hi, I'm a soldier station at fort huachuca, and I just had my gear shipped to me and I'm die to get back on some walls! Is there anywhere at all where I can climb within 50 miles of Sierra Vista?

Can you please be a bit more specific? Directions, details of routes, just anything, I looked it up on google maps and it just looked like a big flat area.

Go to mountainproject.com and look at Arizona. The directions to both East and West Stronghold are there, as well as plenty of info and pictures. And this site as well, rockclimbing.com, has lots of pictures and info (but not directions).
The old guidebook is out of print. But I think some of the general Arizona guidebooks have a selection of routes.
Although there are bolts there, it is decidedly not a sport area. Adventurous and scenic.

Using Geir's topos (http://www.geir.com/climbs.html) you can get started at Cochise, in particular I would recommend Sheepshead. An easy walk gets you to long routes and great climbing. Even though there are lot of bolts on many of Sheepshead's routes, they are not sport climbs.

Thanks guys, I'm Gona have to try it out sometime soon, i just got myself some new quick draws(old ones were frayed) so I'd really like to test them ok before doing 10.0 lead climbs, so this place sounds perfect.

Just further north on the road to Cochise, you can get to Isle of Ewe and Sweetrock, two sport areas you can climb with draws only. The latter has many moderate routes for you to get to know the area.

Sweet, thank you, oh and do I need to bring my rope to these areas? Or are there ropes already there?

I don't even know where that is, but it sounds good, I just really really wish there were some rope on base, cause there are some really nice places to go climbing, but no set routes that I know of. Please please please tell me if anyone knows of routes on fort huachuca!
