Description Suggest change

Follow the bolts up, watching yourself clipping the third bolt (possible grounding potential). Crux is down low between the first and third bolts. Eases way up toward the top. The story on this route is that this route was a "botched, abandened project redone and finished in 2003 (online guide)." The Taos Rock book notes this route is "loose and contrived and should have been left dead." My personal take on the route was that it was OK (worth doing but not great), didn't find anything loose, and a fine route to climb if the wind is blowing at 30mph, it is cold, and there is not much more in the sun to climb (south facing)!

Location Suggest change

Starts on the south facing end of the crag, just right of the route going directly up the arete (The Matrix, 5.11c).

Protection Suggest change

6 bolts to anchors.
