On July 1, 2020, the New Mexico state governor issued an executive order (cv.nmhealth.org/wp-content/…) requiring all visitors from out of state to self-isolate or self-quarantine for a period of at least 14 days from the date of their entry into the State of New Mexico or for the duration of their presence in the State, whichever is shorter. The terms "self-isolate" or "self-quarantine" refer the voluntary physical separation of a person or group of people in a residence or other place of lodging. Any person who is self-isolating or self-quarantining may only leave a residence or place of lodging to receive medical care and should not allow others into the residence or place of lodging except for those providing medical care, emergency response, or other individuals designated by the New Mexico Department of Health.
The executive order also closes all New Mexico State Parks to non-NM residents.
This Executive Order shall take effect on July 1, 2020 and shall remain in effect through the duration of the public health emergency declared in Executive Order 2020-004 and any extensions of that emergency declaration or until it is rescinded.
Additionally, NM state guidance requires all persons to wear a mask anytime they are out in public, including outdoor recreation areas.
Pitch 2: Continue up from the tree, trending slightly left. Pass through some loose rock (can be difficult to protect) through some 5.5 or 5.6 climbing, placing pro where you can. Continue up through the offwidth (need #5 cam to protect) to a ledge, and then right to another ledge. Belay here (can use cordelette off rocks for anchor).
Pitch 3: Continue up easy 5th class to the summit. Could do the climb in two pitches with a 50m rope, but rope drag may be nasty.
Anchors: Can use webbing/ cordlette around summit boulders
Descent: Walk of the south end of the formation (exposed 4th class), or rappel down Lost Ledge route (south end) with two 60m ropes. There was some new webbing with rap rings already placed when I climbed it (9/2005).
