Mariposa 5.12- 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  New Mexico : Taos Area : ... : 6. Wayne Manor
Start in open book with perfect finger crack and some edges to set up for crux bulge throw for slopers over bulge and establish yourself on face for some gear. Go up steep face and crack to anchors on left. Another route put up in 80's? only one bolt at time of first ascent but added another. A huge flake pulled off by first bolt and a jug broke off at crux while cleaning so it felt ok to claim 1st ascent, but it wasn't us. Probably 5.10+ before....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Mexico
