Description

A well protected crack on good rock. Touted by the Sandia Rock guide as "The best 5.8 in the Sandias". The crack begins at the right end of the formation and continues to a right facing dihedral. Midway up this dihedral (not far past a piece of fixed pro- an old stuck cam), you will step left, out of the dihedral, and onto the face. Continue up the crack system to the top of the climb.

Protection

Gear: 1 set of cams to #2, set of nuts.
Anchors: Gear (cams and nuts, cannot remember sizes.)
Descent: Walk off by scrambling into a gully at the southside of the formation. Easy fifth class downclimbing.
