On July 1, 2020, the New Mexico state governor issued an executive order (cv.nmhealth.org/wp-content/…) requiring all visitors from out of state to self-isolate or self-quarantine for a period of at least 14 days from the date of their entry into the State of New Mexico or for the duration of their presence in the State, whichever is shorter. The terms "self-isolate" or "self-quarantine" refer the voluntary physical separation of a person or group of people in a residence or other place of lodging. Any person who is self-isolating or self-quarantining may only leave a residence or place of lodging to receive medical care and should not allow others into the residence or place of lodging except for those providing medical care, emergency response, or other individuals designated by the New Mexico Department of Health.
The executive order also closes all New Mexico State Parks to non-NM residents.
This Executive Order shall take effect on July 1, 2020 and shall remain in effect through the duration of the public health emergency declared in Executive Order 2020-004 and any extensions of that emergency declaration or until it is rescinded.
Additionally, NM state guidance requires all persons to wear a mask anytime they are out in public, including outdoor recreation areas.
P2 (5.10): this is the crux pitch. Face climb to the corner and climb a moderate length pitch to another bolted belay. A party could rap to the ground from this belay with two ropes (a good option as the first two pitches are far better than the last two pitches).
P3 (5.9): continue up the weakness, climb over a small roof with a bolt and come to another bolted belay.
P4 (5.7): follow common Organ Mountain face and disjointed cracks to the top of the rap gully. Walk up and right (south) to the top of the first rap.
"Rebolting the protection bolt on P2 is not necessary. P1 and P2 anchors are each composed of several rusted leapers and one modern bolt. They could be rebolted someday, but felt safe for rapping as of 2.19.18."
