Start off a boulder and onto the face. Go right on roof and up into .8 crack (gear), then go up to arete, a hard clip. Mike fell here from broken hold and didn't hit slab, but use caution. We wish it was rifle-esque, name goes with routes to the left. Good moves on roof to a lesser finish.


Taos Rock


7 bolts? to single bolt anchor

wow jay! it had been led to flat ledge before. we thought it should go even higher? it was left unfinished and put up on lead, so clipping wasn't the best but not so bad either. I am glad it is finished and am looking forward to climbing it in it's improved state. Feb 1, 2014
The top half of this route gets a bit dirty & dusty after heavy rain but seems to stay clean if it gets brushed after the rain. It has also been confirmed now at 11+, and is actually one of the better "warm ups" for the cave routes. Dec 23, 2013
I only helped "Fix" this route. Kevin Ormerod did all the work, and I'd say he did more than "fix" it. As far as i know this route had been listed as unfinished. Kevin led up through the crux (where the route had previously ended) past the last bolt and FINISHED this climb, with a 2 bolt anchor at the obvious ledge above. He also relocated all but one of the original bolts. The finished route is: Chaturanga 5.11+ Oct 20, 2009
