Description

Start in the boxy "phone booth" looking formation on the rock. Fun stemming leads you to underneath a bulgy overhang. Pull through the jugs, clip a welcome bolt, and gain a nice stance before continuing up the arete. A few cruxy, thoughtful moves lead to some jugs and an interesting finish.

Protection

9 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

Well whatever you grade it, 10c or 10d, it is a fun and exciting climb. I'd like to think it's 10d since I have yet to send it.... Jul 5, 2008

This, and Chicks with Ricks, were in my opinion the best of their grade at the Cockscomb crag. With all the crimping and side pulling, these two routes offer some diversity in movement. Apr 6, 2008

Agree this seemed pretty hard for the 10c given in Jemez Rock. Especially on the upper arete. I always felt like I was on the wrong side of the arete. May 24, 2007

FA was by Rick and Leslie Bradshaw, and Rick Smith, in 2000. I might have been helping out that day too, but I can't remember. I did help Rick put up about 10 of the Cockcomb routes.
