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

Description [Suggest Change]

A long, slightly meandering line to get to a short section of fun, steep and featured climbing that ends all too soon.
Climb up a big corner and crack past a few bolts and move right when it makes sense. Cruise slabby, lichen encrusted terrain through a tricky section to the steep finish. Then neat, featured climbing to the anchors.

Location [Suggest Change]

The left-most route on the Hidden Wall. Just a very short distance from the right edge of the Easy Bake Alcove.
There's a belay/dog-leash bolt at the base. (Turns out that belay bolt was unnecessary but it's there now...)

Protection [Suggest Change]

60m rope, ~13 bolts to chains with carabiners.

The cracks are a bit dirty/sandy and there's some insecure rock on this route. I wouldn't recommend this for a beginner lead. Mar 26, 2017

I agree with Rika. In addition to the dirt and suspect holds, there are a decent amount of ledges you could fall on. some of the moves are pretty cool so it makes for a nice warm up to get the mental juices flowing Aug 20, 2017
