Follow thin cracks to really nice ledge after the second bolt. Rest up for the blunt arete/face moves above to the anchors. The crux for me was clipping and moving past the last bolt.


This route is listed as route 24 in Marc Beverly's "Jemez Rock & Pecos Area" guidebook published by Sharp End. It's the next to last climb on the far right end of the Poultrygeist area. NOTE: In Beverly's book the route is listed as 5.8. This is incorrect.


8 bolts to springed cold shuts.

Just to get the record straight, and to recognize Ken Kisiel's efforts/contribution, the establishment and FA's were actually by Ken Kisiel and me in 2000. Jul 6, 2008

Excellent route. Felt easier than chicks with ricks, but that may just be the scary factor...

The beginning is great fun... with a stick clip, and a little scary without (or so I've heard).

Enjoy!! May 27, 2008

I thought this was noticeably easier than the other 10c's at the Poultrygeist (which I thought were all a bit hard for the grade). Really fun climbing with some amazing pockets at mid-height. The start is really neat too, but I can see how some would find it frustrating. May 24, 2007
FA was by Rick and Leslie Bradshaw, 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.

I toproped this one. Typical hard 10c at Coxcomb. Excellent climbing for the good climbers. A must for solid 10 leaders. Oct 8, 2006
