Description

A bolted line, starting with thin face and then switching to friction. The lower half contains all the climbing; after the last bolt, you run it out on easy ground to the anchor.

Unknown FA, name, and grade; not in any guide books. Some wag suggested that this line could be called "Tijeras," since it's just east of Albuquerque....

/Edit/ I changed the posted rating to a 5.9+, because I now think the moves off the ground are similar to those of New Rage, imo, which also is commonly listed at 5.9+. But, we'll see what the consensus says.

Location

Just ~20 feet right of the start of the Albuquerque Route, slightly up the ramp, behind the big spruce tree.

Protection

5 bolts. Shares a two-bolt/no chains anchor with the Albuquerque Route.
