DescriptionClimb talus toward the obvious gully, which features a few boulder-type moves on quality rock. Above here the standard line makes a slightly dropping traverse right (north) before heading straight up. It is possible to go more or less straight up but this is all high angle talus where numerous accidents have occurred. Pick your line carefully.
As a side note, there is some potential for further development on this peak. A UNM Mountaineering Club trip in 1974, for example, climbed a direct line up the south face for 3 pitches of scary low-5th class. Other similar lines might be found by the intrepid choss-lover.
