BETA PHOTO: Belly Up, 5.7, Potrillo Cliffs, White Rock, NM

Description 

This is route #25 in the on-line guide.
Start in an easy broken crack system that is shared with Grandstanding (a 5.4 that goes to the right). The crux is in the top half, surmounting the bulgy dihedral with a thin seam in back.

Location 

Middle of the south cliff.

Protection 

Small-medium cams below, but have some small nuts ready for the thin seam at the crux.
This line possesses two camo'd bolts for a top anchor. One can also use these bolts to TR Belly Flop (acknowledging the slight possible pendulum if you fall off Belly Flop).

One can also traverse left at the overhang, 'cause you're chicken5hi7 and on your second trad lead, and connect up with Belly Flop for an exciting fist-finish, just recompense for climbing with my "skirt on"! Great gear!
