This route is unlike most routes at Cochiti, with few pockets, many crimps, and a few slopey jugs. Unfortunately this overhanging wall is over almost as soon as it begins, and it hardly seems worth all the trouble to get to.


Next route East from Red Zinger, immediately around the arete.


5 bolts, no anchor. Approach via rappel, or with trad gear, a rope and belay from the base of Red Zinger. The sloping 'ledge' at the base of the route has one questionable fixed bolt, and one gaping hole where the other bolt used to be. Bring one or two 3/4"-1.5" cams to back up this bolt.
