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

Description [Suggest Change]

Like a Hippalectryon, this one's tame and fun to ride.

Climb up cool, featured rock into a small dihedral. Easier climbing up to the upper wall past a left-angling crack and some more nicely featured rock above.

Location [Suggest Change]

The left-most route on the Monster wall. It starts just a few feet left of Ogopogo.

Protection [Suggest Change]

8 or 9 bolts to a two-bolt anchor with steel lowering biner. Optionally, pruning shears.

Seems to have gotten more traffic over the summer and is a little more cleaned up. had a little better time than my first go on it. Still... bring the gardening tools :D

On the plus side, this is good one for the area for climbers looking to find this grade away from the crowds. Sep 4, 2017
