DescriptionThis is described as "a quality crag with a short approach" in the 'Sandia Select' guidebook by Mick Schein. In addition to the three routes in the guidebook:
a. 5.8 My Ass (5.8+)
b. Unknown (5.10d)
c. Unknown (5.9)
there is an additional bolted route ascending the arete to the left of route 'c'.
The routes are appoximately 150 ft with only a couple of bolts on the crux moves of routes 'a' and 'b'. The routes can also be top roped.
Getting ThereThe guide book describes the route to base of the crag. The top of the crag can be approched by turning north off of the "Crest Spur Trail" at the base of the stairs. Follow base of the cliff face north to just before the first gully. Zig-zag your way down through the woods and cross the gully before in drops down the south side of the crag. When you cross the gully, you should be able to see the top off the wall beyond a short traverse through some Aspens and rock ledges.
