DTP climbing in Captain Hook's Grotto.
Tucked away and off the the main trail, this wall see's little traffic. The entire wall get's morning shade, and the actual grotto climbs "Captain Hook" and "Peter Pan Flies Again" get nice continual shade in the summer.
Climbs from left to right are: Lunch With a Crocodile
5.10d Peter Pan Flies Again
5.11b Captain Hook
About 200 feet left of the tower. Between Sleeping Beauty Wall and Midnight Pumpkin Wall. This one doesn't have a nice graded trail leading up to it, but there are a few small ill-defined trails to follow.
Weather station 5.7 miles from here

Enjoy fun face moves past one last bolt to finish. ...[more] Browse More Classics in NM
