The FA belongs to Glenn Ritter and friends. This is likely the first bolted route in the Pecos (but not the first time humans had scaled these walls: Native American climbers most certainly had achieved the upper 5.13s hundreds of years ago). In the early 90s, they road-tripped from Tennessee all the way to southwest Texas after seeing a picture of big limestone walls near a highway bridge in Texas. They did some research and narrowed it down to the Pecos River Gorge. Feb 17, 2017

Incredible route! Be careful getting to second bolt above belay ledge - definite decking potential on some thin, committing moves. After that the route is continuously full of intricate sequences and thoughtful moves on superb stone. Felt harder and more committing than the other 10s in the area, but an absolute classic.
