Description Suggest change

This "new" route was not included in the NM & TX Falcon Guide. This is likely the least-good route on the Big Horn Wall, but it does offer something moderate a safe(er) distance from the bees.

The route begins right on the approach trail ascending a short slab to a right leaning crack. Lieback & undercling up the steep crux bulge, grope for some good pockets, then heel-hook and swing around the prow to get established on the gray slab. Funky climbing with small holds up the long gray slab lead to the anchor.

It's possible, and not too hard/dangerous, to traverse right from the anchor to rig TRs on Smoke Signals or Ghost Dancers.

Location Suggest change

Furthest left route on the Big Horn Wall, climbs the long gray slab at the left margin of the cave.

Protection Suggest change

Bolts to 2-bolt anchor.
