A nice climb. Moves down low can be made easier by staying left in the gash area otherwise you're dealing with the typical smooth start of the climbs at Area 37. Sharp near the top.
Another climb with a funky cold shut anchor setup with one bolt higher than the other. Needs hardware to make it easier to equalize and clean.

Great climb! Fun, thin moves throughout the bottom lead to a small roof before the anchors. Using the crack is good, but can be a bit painful and you may leave a little skin behind! (I did.)

Thanks to a hardware donation from NMCRAG, the anchors on this route were replaced in July 2007 with quality Fixe Sport Anchors.

I have lived in Los Alamos for several years and recently heard about this area through Mountain Project. Great routes. Tech at top on overhang. Great climbing and mostly shaded.
