Access Issue: June 15, 2018 - Sandia Mountains closed due to Cibola National Forest Stage III fire restrictions Details


A great 5.10 route with a stout 11d sequence to pull over the roof. Climb starts in a shallow crack and detaching flake on the climbers right of Sinister Base and left of Pussy Whipped. Heads straight up to a thin seam in the roof, following the seam out and over roof into a right open book. Follow bolts to shared anchor with Pussy Whipped.

Is between Sinister Base and Tiger by the Tail. Heads up large flake to thin seam in roof.


6 Bolts. Shares 2 bolt chain anchor with Pussy Whipped.

nice moves through the roof. watch the rock quality on this one. a lot of stuff is chossy, especially at the bottom. seems like it could use annual cleaning Aug 22, 2009

Definitely solid pulling the roof, felt v4-ish but i could have botched the beta, had a hard time with my feet. 5.9ish above the roof, once you can stand, there are good rests. The rock above is questionable, seems like some of the blocks are barely in the seam. Sep 28, 2010
