On November 16, 2020, the New Mexico state governor updated the 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 November 16, 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health emergency declared in Executive Order 2020-004 and any extensions of that emergency declaration or until it is rescinded.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.
Pitch 1 (165ft, 5.11b/c) - Ramble up an easy L facing corner for 25 ft or so to the base of the steeper corner above, climb this for 25 feet then step left into the continuing crack and follow this mostly finger crack for another 115ft to the bolted anchor you rappelled in on.
Pitch 2 (90ft, 5.11a/b) - Although not as distinctly unique as the first pitch the second is sustained steep technical climbing that demands savvy lead skills and cool head to find reliable protection. There is sustained 10+ climbing to a ledge about 70 ft up, from here there is a short but committing boulder problem that requires some gear nesting skill. 90ft total to another bolted anchor.
Pitch 3 (100ft, 5.9+) - starts with scrambling up and over the top of this pillar and working your way L with a few moves of down climbing from the notch in the ridge. By stepping L and continuing on a diagonal path up and trending L you will encounter another short section of splitter crack climbing straight up to the top of the formation.
