Shane 5.10- 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  NM : Albuquerque Area Climbing : ... : Block Wall
A good confidence-builder for someone breaking into the grade. Well protected and a hard finish.Very fun moves and good clipping holds. We have found it to be maybe a bit reachy at times. The first clip does not need a stick clip. Crux is getting over the roof at the first bolt.If this route was twice as long, and if there were ten more just like it, this would be a very popular crag......[more]   Browse More Classics in NM

These routes are either graded really low for what they are or something broke off. I was out there this morning, and even with a stick clip, there wasn't anything to grab onto to make it over the roof. Not sure if there used to be something there to make it a 5.9 move, but it's not now. At least if you're shorter than 5'8".
