Description [Edit]

In December 2013, New Mexico became the 17th state to legalize same-sex marriage leaving even the rhyolite of the Jemez Mountains feeling the love. That same week we discovered the heart-shaped hueco at the crux of this route as proof.
Sustained face climbing on great-quality rock leads past the lower half of the route to a big sit-down ledge. An anchor on this ledge allows for climbing just the first half of the route at 5.11b/c. But look up and, like cupid, aim for the heart.
Some easy slab climbing gives way to another steep bit of climbing in a shallow corner past the route's namesake heart-shaped pocket and the anchors.

Location [Edit]

Third route left of the obvious finger crack start of Gnosis on the steep black middle portion of the Hidden Tower.

Protection [Edit]

60m rope and 14 bolts (I was feeling the love too, apparently, and put in a plethora of bolts.)
