This climb follows the vertical white headwall face, with just enough positive ledges and pockets. I found the monopocket move at the 2nd bolt on the headwall to be the cruxiest, but overall this climb was crimpy/forearm pumpy rather than tweaky.

How you reach the headwall is up to you- you can start with a bolt-protected boulder problem, which is the beginning of the climb Put In Pump 5.11+; or you can begin with easy blocks to the right.

This climb would be quite good, if it saw more traffic so the holds weren't sandy.


This climb is #7 in 'Taos Rock'. It is the 3rd bolted route you reach as approaching the River Wall. The vertical white face is obvious, it is just to the right of a wide crack in a right-facing corner.


4, or 6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. Bolt count depends on start chosen.

Used the bouldery start and first two bolts of Put In Pump for this climb. Beware, the first hanger spun freely which made it challenging to clip. Nov 27, 2017
