On July 1, 2020, the New Mexico state governor issued an 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 July 1, 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health emergency declared in Executive Order 2020-004 and any extensions of that emergency declaration or until it is rescinded.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: Climb the Quack dihedral for about 20 feet and step right under the small red roof, aiming for the right leaning finger crack. Follow this crack to an excellent stance and belay on gear. Do not continue up and left but rather look for a small roof up and right. 90 feet, 10b.
Pitch 2: Climb up right towards a small roof about ten feet up (look for small gear under this roof). Bypass it via slot on the left and climb to the red face. Look for pockets for gear, including a large pocket for a #2 that protects the traverse to the right. Just before the right side of the face, look for an obvious tips crack. Aim for this (I went to the right side of the face, climbed above the face, then reached about 5 feet left to protect the step back into the tips crack). Follow the cleanest cracks up and left until the face terminates in a ledge system. Don’t get suckered right into the loose junk. 10c, 150feet, PG13.
P3: Climb to the top of the formation. ~120 feet, 5.5ish, loose.
