Access Issue: June 1, 2018 - The entire Santa Fe National Forest closed to access due Stage III Fire Restrictions Details

Description [Suggest Change]

The 5.12 listed in "Rock and Road." A slight offset crack that slowly gets wider up a gently overhanging and featureless wall. The crux is tight greens through the overhanging section, with no feet. Short and straight forward; pure (and painful) crack climbing at its best.

The anchor is two Rawl 5 piece bolts right under the roof.

Location [Suggest Change]

Splits the middle of the obvious blank wall.

Information on who did the FA of this one would be appreciated. Oct 27, 2014
Josh, just rumor but I had always heard it was the gang that discovered the Enchanted Tower. Bertrand Garmont or something like that. Could be wrong. Rad route though. Don't forget the tape! Oct 31, 2014

Thanks, Eric. Would be fun to know more history. What a difficult size--I couldn't decide between laybacking and climbing it straight on; pulling on cams ended up being the the most realistic strategy. Eager to get back on it. Nov 4, 2014
I used a combo of desperate and delicate laybacking and pulling on cams. I cannot jam it straight on because of the offset. Thanks for putting in the anchor. Nov 5, 2014
