Fritz topping out on Indian Chief Flake Route.
This nice moderate difficulty route follows a left facing flake system in the middle of the SW face. There are a few large chickenheads on the edge of the flake. The climbing is never any harder than 5.5, and is a good introduction to climbing on City of Rocks granite. Very enjoyable.
There is a good 2 bolt anchor at the top of the route, complete with chains and welded-shuts for descent by rappel. A single 60 meter rope is adequate.
A few medium size cams up to a 2 Camalot, and a few small-medium wired stoppers and several standard length runners.

This was my introduction to City of Rocks climbing, and it does not disappoint. It protects well with a standard rack and some 2' long runners to cut down on rope drag.

This is a great first trad lead - low angle and just eats cams
