Comments: We found the climbing up to and just past the first bolt hard for the (12b) grade [feel free to use the "suggested grade" function... I know]. Maybe we missed something, but never having climbed it before today, I'm going with the theory that the broken hold mentioned above increased the grade? Jason, Jeffrey, have you gotten back on it? Stick-clipped boulder problem (fun, hard V5?) to cool-featured, fun, but obviously fairly untrafficked 5.10. Belayers should... more >>

Comments: Just a mere three years later but I finally fixed up the fifth bolt this evening. I drilled a new hole on the right side of the dihedral at about the same height for the new bolt. I didn't use the old bolt stud for a couple reasons:
1.) All the original bolts on this are wonky. I didn't have a nut for the non-standard size and it didn't protrude much from the rock anyway.
2.) The location on the left side of the dihedral meant the rope ran from bolt five on the left to bolt six on t... more >>

Comments: The left anchor carabiner could really use some lube if anyone is so inclined. The gate is very sticky and one must manually shut it.

Ha, hilarious. This is national forest, not a golf course. :-)

This pitch is heady for the 5.7 leader. the first section is an enduro thin fist liebacking on the steep step slab. Looks like it takes #1s and #3s from the ground but somehow only #2s fit, I'd recommend bringing at least 5 #2s to make this safe...

LOL, well played

Comments: Admin note: I moved this route from its originally-submitted location, North Rock, to Mosaic Rock as it sounds like it's near Suprise-Suprise. If incorrect, let me know.

Comments: I added two lines (purple and pink) for the second pitch. The second pitch as marked in yellow is easier but not the standard second pitch as I know it. I believe the more standard second pitch follows the purple line.
A third option I've done a few times is the pink line. Exciting exposure on quality rock but not as much protection.

Comments: The two gnarly widowmaker trees leaning against the wall have been cleared. It was pretty wild. In the carnage, the large kinda-scary-but-very-featured plate down low shared between The InBetween and Bag of Sand was knocked off. It's pretty dirty in that section now (there was dirt behind the flake) but I don't believe the difficulty of the routes has changed.

Comments: Glad to hear this area saw at least *some* action. You're probably the fourth person (after me, Walt and Chris) to climb this route. :-) Lots of lichen for sure...maybe it'll never clean up. Also, did we meet on Friday evening at El Rito, Andrew?

Comments: To be clear, the photo was originally captioned as Huecos Rancheros and added on the Huecos Rancheros page. I corrected the caption and the location after Rob's comment.

Comments: I met a couple of out-of-town climbers at El Rito recently that were having a hard time navigating the walls of the area and didn't have the PDF. Thus, it makes sense to include the overview photo here for those just using the MountainProject app.

Comments: The original summit register book is all filled up. If you're heading up it would be awesome if you could take a new notebook up there. The summit register is a large ammo can so a full-size notebook will fit in there. Plenty of pens.

Comments: We weren't too keen on the rock quality on this line. Cool position up high but probably wouldn't climb again.

If you look from the sport camp area, you can see cliffs to the left that look clean and tall. It doesn't seem to be in the guide, however. Might that be some "secret" area? Heh. I'm sure there is more to develop.

There might be some random good lines in that area but after hiking and exploring that region, I found typically things are either not as steep as they look or pretty crummy rock. No secret areas that I'm aware of, damn it.

Heading to El Rito for Memorial weekend. Will it be okay to leave our camp setup behind while we go climb (tents, sleeping bag, dry box...)? Or is it better to pack everything up again?

We've never had any problems leaving camp up in all the years we've been camping there. There will be a lot of folks there for the holiday weekend with many camps setup so I wouldn't be concerned.

Why was 'Nailbiter' removed? It is the .12- arête left of Eureka? Just wondering...

I have a vague recollection the original submitter (forgot his name) deleted it a couple months ago. If you have climbed it and want to add it, that would be great. Thanks.

Comments: Heads up...the spring of 2017 has produced a bumper crop (at least for the Los Alamos area) of wood ticks. This spring I've found three ticks on me or my climbing partner during/after climbing at the Dungeon. Gross!

We didn't finish via the Questa Flatiron P3 route because we were concerned with the gulley being snowed in.Does anyone know if it is possible to rappel down from the summit of Flatiron onto P3 of BMPM?

I haven't done it but I think you'd need two 60m ropes and the rappel would be off-camber with potential of a big swing if you didn't stay in control. Given my recollection up there, I wouldn&@... more >>

it would be helpful if one of the administrators could at least post a pic of the toad boulder
Hi Jack. I don't think any of the NM area admins have climbed on this boulder. Try contacting Scott Beguin as he did the FAs on this boulder (and many others in the canyons around Los Alamos.)

Went the last 2 weekends and groups are arriving with dogs and without permits. The property manager is making trips daily and kicking out those without a permit. They are not being rude about it, even suggesting the parties find a cell signal, get a permit, and come back the same day.

Damn, that makes my blood boil. Simple, easy rules to follow for some great climbing and climbers can't even do that. Once again, climbers are proving they are their ow... more >>
