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

Description [Suggest Change]

Fun combo of face climbing, pressure moves and a few finger locks. Pro is good with plenty of options for cams and nuts. Majority of the climbing is 5.7ish sans the crux which is the last move to the chains.

Location [Suggest Change]

About 30' left of the 5.7 unnamed gear crack at the left of Showdown wall. There is a head high detached flake at the base.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Small stuff. Camalot's .75 and lower. Used a 0 and 1 TCU. Set of nuts. 6-8 quickdraws. 60cm slings optional. 2 Bolts with chains at the top.

Carolyn Parker and I cleaned this line but the anchor was already there. The original line climbs a little left of the easy corner and is a bit harder. The FA of the left line was by Brian Paletta before 2004, Carolyn and I clean the easier right line in 04' Nov 21, 2010

Yea I have no rating skills, I had a hard time finding something at the end where I felt the crux was, but I tend to miss holds (Im the best 5.11 5.9 climber). The two people after me, who were somewhat novice, cruised the top. Mar 3, 2011
