Access Issue: Access Issue for Areas in BLM Taos Field Office Lands
Per the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Taos Field Office's (blm.gov/office/taos-field-o…) 2012 Taos Resource Management Plan (RMP) (bit.ly/2Kab3HO), "Installation of new rock climbing routes or hardware will require pre-approval by the BLM." The RMP is the document that guides all the BLM management in a given field office. Climbers are asked to respect this guidance and not install new bolts or fixed hardware on Taos Field Office BLM land without pre-approval from the BLM. NM CRAG (nmcrag.org/) is currently working with the BLM Taos Field Office to establish specific guidance for new route development in the district and they hope to have a formal process in the near future.
A straightforward line that is easier than it looks. Makes for a nice warmup for this area. Straightforward climbing with plenty of positive holds and only a couple tricky sections.
This is the bolted line just to the left of Esmerelda. It's between climb 22 in the Foley guide and Esmerelda. Goes straight up the dihedral after some blocky stuff down low.
5 bolts, option of gear down low if the easy runout is not comfortable.
