Description 

Really thin moves on a smooth face lead to a tough roof to enjoyable arete climbing above to the anchors. A large block at the roof offers nice holds all around but just appears to be sketchy. I tried not to pull on it too hard!

Location 

This is the farthest right climb in the Poultrygeist area. This route is listed as route 25 in Marc Beverly's "Jemez Rock & Pecos Area" guidebook published by Sharp End. NOTE: In Beverly's book the route is listed as 5.8. This is incorrect. (I chose this "5.8" as my warm-up before quickly realizing it was NOT 5.8!) Ha!

Protection 

8 bolts to springed cold shuts. (Raumers).

FA was by Rick Bradshaw, in 2000. I might have been helping out that day too, but I can't remember. I did help Rick put up about 10 of the Cockcomb routes.

The start of this thinkg is a bit whack. Obviously the idea is to start on the arete, where there are virtually no holds. I used the arete and the crack to the right, which is a bit weak. Middle and top of this route is awesome.
