Unknown Cave Route 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  NM : Enchanted Tower : The Giants Molars
Climb vertical wall to over hanging crux. A bit run out. This route doesn't have a name in the guidebook. Since you are running the rope up the gap between the two rocks making up the giant's teeth, I like "Flossing the Molars"....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
