Comments: Interestingly, I have not seen a spider yet. I wonder what time of year that was? This place seems to have the highest concentration of moderate problems (v2-v6) in the Jemez.

Comments: Thanks Jason, perhaps that information on the introduction page will help. I think donated wag bags would help too. ON another note, perhaps we could encourage people to camp at the datil well campgound as well? I know this has become the preferable alternative to some ABQ climbers and it makes some sense.
