New Mexican Wine - Black Beauty


This is an extension to Chocolate d'Vine. An interesting hand switch in a pocket with an internal knob leads to a thin crux and the bulge above.

I thoroughly enjoyed this route, nice job Vaino and Doni...Thanks!
The continuation from Chocolate d'Vine and the huge ledge no hands rest made the route a little disjointed and is the only reason for the lack of 4 stars. Star rating relative to Socorro.

Great route, probably on the stiff side of 5.12b, might be a 5.12c. Cool holds and two distinct boulder problems make this route really fun.
