Description

Jam your way up a finger crack to a hand crack through a crux section about 10' up, to more featured/broken crack climbing above and a 2-bolt anchor.

Good pro all the way. 5.10 grade is soft compared to 5.10 cracks at White Rock.

Location

Hike the approach to Dead Cholla. Stop at the first bolted climb you see (Bob..it). Jam Time is the hand crack to its left.

Protection

1 set cams to a 2-bolt anchor.

Clásico! Truly excellent route - a classic at Dead Cholla.

Cruxy finger locks/finger jams to start. Crack eventually widens into GREAT thin hands, which flare into SUPER SOLID hand jams all the way! Women or folks with smaller hands may get to enjoy incredible fist jams here and there with some chicken wing opportunities up top. A must-do!! Oct 16, 2017

For someone used to climbing basalt crags that are all about placing gear and jamming this is the nicest climb out here. Just wish that there were more and that they were longer as this is such a stunning place and so easy to get to from Taos. Aug 15, 2012
