Effective 8:00am, May 19th, 2022, the Santa Fe National Forest has issued a stage 3 (full closure) fire restriction order for the entire Santa Fe national forest. The order can be found at fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DO…
The order is effective until December 31, 2022 or until rescinded earlier. Before you climb in any of the Santa Fe areas, you are encouraged to verify the land management status of the particular area to ensure it is not within the closure order area.
The MountainProject forum thread at mountainproject.com/forum/t… does a good job of detailing what is closed and what is open in the state of New Mexico.
The crux is protected by small gear, which makes it a little scary, but good solid gear can be found before committing to it.
Head up to the undercling flake. Place pro underneath the flake and traverse left and crank through the insecure crux to a sharp flake to shake out on. From here, most of the rest of the climb is 5.10. Climb up to a triangular roof, pass this on the left, and lieback up the steep finger crack to a stance on the prow. The crack above is mostly fingers with some thin hands sections.
A direct start in a seam 10' left of the undercling is 5.12, with not much for pro, if any.
