Featured Route For River Wall

Aurora's Diving Board 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b PG13  NM : Taos Area : ... : River Wall
Climb blocky chossy 5.5 unprotected to a bolt just below a big ledge, the Diving Board? Follow the crack up and left from here- keep an eye out for the occasional nut and cam placements... once you reach the more vertical (crux) portion of the crack, the pro is good, but the rock is just as dirty.This climb I felt was not full-on 'R', but is not a good lead for a 5.7 leader either. Don't blame me, though....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
