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


This route follows a crack to the right of License and a Visa There was signs that the area has been climbed before but I think our line was mostly original.
From memory:
P1: Make your way up to an obvious corner crack kind of in the middle of this part of Pino Wall
P2: Climb the crack through some rock lettuce and exit left into a trough. Climb up the trough trending to the right over some thin, possibly dicey slab and belay.
P3: Keep heading straight up a left facing dihedral to a roof with some big sketchy looking blocks. Climb past the blocks and belay.
P4: Keep going to the top.

Sorry for the vague description I will try and post the original topo of the route.


Toward the south end of Pino Wall. Climbers right of "License and Visa"


Standard Sandia Trad Rack. No fixed gear.
