Walk around to the north side of the entry boulders, and discover some tweaky but aesthetic problems. Stays cooler and gets less slippery than sun-exposed areas.

Start in a squatting position using the 2 lowest chalked holds at the rightmost vertical crack (there are two of them). Go up and move through the dark blob near the lip (catching the sun on the right side of this photo), then move left, using the horizontal seam for hands. You get a set of good deep crimps before the next vertical crack, then move through holds that are much worse than they look. The key is figuring out feet.If you start losing skin on this one, give it up and try again once yo...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM

Brett and Jill since the long long ago days.
Will have to ask Ron if he knows why.

Please remove "warmup boulders" in the name. Just stupid seeing as how the whole crag is a "Warmup" for anything better. Plus: it's not the name.
