Follow the left leaning crack system just left of the high roof routes. Lieback at the start, to a hand crack section, which is protected with cams and can be jammed or liebacked. Then cruising up an offwidth section on a ramp that's easier than it looks. The crux is at the small triangular roof, which is bypassed on the left using face holds or a reach to jugs straight over it.
Protection is great the whole way, so this climb is one of the more popular leads at the ONP.

There is a direct start in the 5.11 range beginning 10' left of the normal start in a shallow dihedral.

The route's name is not in the guidebook and was provided courtesy of Scott B.


This climb is route 4 in the
Old New Place route guide. (I couldn't fit the route names/grades in anywhere so refer to the route descriptions here for corresponding number.) and Jemez Rock.

Just left of the high roof identify a left leaning hand crack.


Rack: cams & nuts to 3" with an optional 4" piece
2-bolt anchor.
