Super obscure boulder just north of the old sport routes that are east of the main trail. Its a fine cube with three good sides containing a nice V3 on the west face, a traversing crimp line, a tall easy arete, a classic splitter, and a bit more terrain.

Getting There 

Hike just past the sport routes/main cluster of rocks until you can identify the drainage that runs down from north east. Follow the drainage until you run into the boulder.

The obvious splitter crack. I fixed a line to clean it and also tr'd it before bouldering the line. Later I added tr anchors. We have improved the landing, but it is still a bit tall and there is a delicate move to exit. Gently overhanging tips without feet lead to a strenuous thin hands slot and then the technical slab/seam exit. I think it is about 18' or so. This is one of the harder pure cracks in the foothills....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
