Best trad line in area, has only seen a few ascents. Couldn't find out who did it and what style. We took the liberty to name it. Start in chossy band below nice open book w'2" crack going up to mini roof, turn on left then trend right over stegosaurus flakes, solid and cool. Then ascend straight in finger crack with pods and good small edges for feet. Bolted variation climbs on right face (5.11c). Finish same crack to new chain anchor....[more] Browse More Classics in New Mexico
