Description Suggest change

This slab climb is located on one of the low angle slabs and is located about 100 feet from the Domingo Baca trail. See the photos of the location in nmcrag.org/Domingo_baca.pdf.

The route starts under two large oak trees that are at the base of this slab and climbs "Out of the Darkness" onto the slab. The crux is near the first bolt at tree level, but is easily dispatched. Step left at the first bolt to a series of water pockets and climb these huge buckets another 20-30 feet until you reach the second bolt (the stance the bolt was drilled from will be obvious). Work up to a small roof, pass on the right and follow seam heading ( a purple 0.75 camelot fits in a slot in this seam and is the only pro for about 20 feet) for a hand sized crack in the middle of the face. Climb this hand crack that turns into a larger crack corner. belay at the top.

Can either walk off to the left - scramble to another climb - or set a rappel so that you can climb the other route located nearby - :Slab Sacrilege"

Protection Suggest change

2 bolts and standard rack - pieces to 4 " at top.
