Start in shallow alcove to narrowing high corner, mono with opposed arm bar as an option lend to strenuous exit to good holds. These are hard to leave as you traverse out on the technical crux past three bolts. A fall here could chop your ankle. The upper wall has nice rock and relents a bit to the anchors shared with Wounded Knee.

Of the few dozen Acoma men of fighting age still alive after the battle, Oñate ordered the right foot chopped off of each one. Oñate was later tried and convicted of cruelty to Indians and colonists, and was banished from New Mexico. However, he was cleared of all charges on appeal and lived out the rest of his life in Spain

Revenged in sybolism only..


Just right of original Panorama cracks.


7 bolts to 2 ring anchor.
