This includes a series of small walls between Los Huevos and the Retirement Wall. The climbing is quite varied and in grade and style. It gets a variety of sun and some midday shade on its left end due to tall trees near the cliff.

Getting There 

Approach per description for The Retirement Wall and the trail to The Best of the Rest is located on its left end.

Wild underclings lead to long crux moves until the angle eases. A no-hands rest lets you recover before the final headwall crux on perfect stone.The first 12' of the route has less than perfect stone. Stick clipping the first bolt avoids any problems with this and keeps you off the rock at the base of the route.If not for the rock at the start, along with the no-hands rest, this would be a mega classic. It still is classic....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Mexico
