BETA PHOTO: Kiss of the Lion route #3.
Start on a slabby face with a crack to a ledge, continue on variations of face and crack climbing to finish across a slab. Belay at the mouth of a feature that looks like the face of a lion. Continue up to the right on lower angle terrain to a two bolt anchor (good Fixe stainless steel 1 7/8" X 5/16" hammer-ins). Rap two pitches to descend.
On the left end of the southeast-facing wall of the lower east ridge at about 12,500 Ft.
Trad rack - placements can be tricky on the first pitch.
The souteast face of the east ridge of Tijeras.
