This line is plotted incorrectly in Jemez Rock, but should go as shown in JH's beta photo, I think.

The crack immediately left of this but still right of Momementum (not shown in photo or guidebook) goes at 5.8 with some big loose blocks, and I wouldn't recommend it. It is the climb the guy in this Photo is soloing.
