DescriptionThis 120 degree overhanging wall features many of the area's hardest routes. Impossible to miss, this crag is the next sector approached after the "Entrance Area". This section of cliff offers 4 routes, all bolted 5.13s. These routes all pose various ethical dilemmas.
Two of the routes are bolted cracks that could be lead with gear, though I doubt anyone would ever bother to do that. Fall From Grace is almost entirely manufactured. And its likely all four of the routes have been "comfortized" to some degree.
Despite these detractions, these routes can provide some entertainment. The rock is excellent, and if you are after grades, these are some of the hardest routes in the Albuquerque area.
