Comments: Hey Everyone. Made a photosynth of the Sunny Side of La Cueva. check it out. There's a very detailed crack above the hermits cave if you click there, also some close ups on anchors. Enjoy!! photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=8...

Comments: Edited. Karl, or anyone else, let me know if there are any mistakes. And is there a name for the face that has Fun in the Sun?

Comments: On Elervumís Cove when doing the (P) Route from the Lost Causes guide, or the route that splits to a 10&11 near the top. Are there chains or anything to rap off of? I know there's that one bolt on the 11. We didnt make it to the top cause we weren't sure if there was a rap down...

Comments: To all you climbers stuck in Charleston, IL, don't feel bad. I grew up in the countryside, and go down any creek for long enough you'll find something to climb. The map I posted above has a spot of mine with a 20-30ft sandstone cliff. Rock quality is so so, if I still lived there I'd get a pic of the face. The Embarrass River has some faces too, but you gotta wade upstream for a few hours. Happy climbing!

Comments: I think a 5.10 is a good rating. What a fun route! And those top bolts are a mystery to me too...unless someone can find a route up that mess right below them without taking out your belayer with rock.

Comments: I've heard a people refer to a "mini half-dome" somewhere in the Organs on the West side. I feel like they're talking about something that's around the dripping springs area...Anyone else heard this or know what I'm talking about?


Location: NM : Las Cruces Area Climbing : Organ Mountains : South Organs : Pena Blanca : ... : Zig-zag Crack (5.11-)

Comments: I'm not sure if this is the same route as described. But instead of staying along the crack system, after the first crux stay to the left(on the face) and follow a very minor crack to thimble hold face climb. Lots of fun and very challenging. Make sure you're belayer is back as there are some loose rocks. I throw some pics up once they're developed.

Comments: I just climbed "Speak in English" a few days ago, and the upper section is feeling a lot looser than it has in the past. Also a solid hold, a plate size about 20cm x 20cm x 3cm, about half way up broke under my weight of 65kg...

Comments: Trad is pretty safe. Like you said, those hangers are old. If the consensus is 5.9, I'll change it. Happy climbing!

Comments: Some of the other formations east of La Cueva have a few routes. I've seen a few old pitons and bolts there. I'll try to get some pics and routes up soon.

Comments: Once you get to the summit of Checkerboard, follow the saddle north to the next, higher summit. You can find a little Ginkgo Biloba bottle with a summit log in the rock pile. (I'll try to put a summit log by checkerboard next time I'm up.) There are also some awesome 100-200 ft pitches on the west side of the second summit, check it out it's worth the time.

Comments: Do NOT use the two anchors at the top of the route. They have quite a bit of shifting on the hangers. When I rebolt the route I'll post it. Should be perfect for Trad until then. Good luck!

Comments: Once at the top, go to the V in the middle. there's a nice place to chill. You can access the anchors for Bolted Chimney easily on the shady side or follow the ledge leading right to other routes.

Comments: Climbing on the face, right side of crack, is pretty fun. some loose rock but not bad. we nick-named this the butt-crack for obvious reasons...so if you need help finding it you know what to look for
