Description

Named for the popular side dish at the Faralito restaurant in the town of El Rito, Refritos is an alternate first pitch for Chili Verde, and it joins that route at Juniper Ledge midway up the cliff. It follows an obvious black streak, with sparse pro but fun climbing and fewer bushes than nearby climbs on this cliff. Creative leaders might find gear but don't fall.
Follow the 2nd pitch of Chile Verde (a left-facing corner) to top out.

Location

This climb takes on the black streak, which is almost directly in front of you as you reach the cliff from the approach trail.

This climb is not where it is shown in 'Taos Rock'; it is to the right of the field of that photo.

Protection

Nuts and cams to 2". A 2-bolt anchor is found on Juniper Ledge.

The DMM alloy offsets and medium sized offset brassies make the first pitch much more mild than without. Still not gonna be fun if you fall but they will provide more opportunities for decent pro. Oct 7, 2018
