Access Issue: Seasonal raptor closure for some areas in the Sandias Details

Description

Start from the bolted anchor atop the bolted climbs. From here head straight up clipping the first bolt of Another Pair of New Shoes, clip the first bolt and bust left. Clip bolts on the arete making thin balancy moves heading up to a small roof. Duck left on the arete placing small pro passing the roof, and clip another bolt. From here clip another bolt and merge into the top of Another Pair of New Shoes.

Location

Second pitch climb on Hole in the wall, follows left arete. Can belay off of large tree atop Hole in the Wall buttress.

Protection

Bolts and a few finger size pieces. Could easily do it on all bolts if solid at the grade, but some supplemental pro is nice.

Birth of the Cool is great but New Pair of Shoes is better--that is a Sandias classic. Mar 9, 2008
