Description

High first bolt that requires a balancy move out to the left onto a slab. Its possible to place protection in a horizontal halfway up to the bolt. Finish the slab with better holds to a standup rest on a balanced plate where you can clip the third bolt. Its vertical from here with the crux being the moves off the rest. Great rock with sustained climbing past 4 bolts to the chains. Another long Socorro moderate that gets sun during winter afternoons.

Location

Third route from the right on Alcohol Wall South. Starts to the left of the cave that forms the right side of the alcove. Between Meat Market and Get Shorty.

Protection

7 bolts, 2 bolt anchor

There is a direct start below the first bolt and left around the corner from the crack. It has been led but the variation makes a better TR (about 5.9+/5.10-). Dec 5, 2016

A #2 and/or a .5/.75 Camalot makes getting to the first bolt fairly safe. If following at your limit, be careful after unclipping the second bolt because of the swing potential. Nov 16, 2013
