If you like being 25 feet of the deck before you are protected, climb this one! May be able to get some pro in before the first bolt. Didn't bring any though!


4 or 5 bolts to anchors

Think somebody added a bolt to this route after the original post. The first bolt is lower now.

Nothing unusually scary about this one - regular Socorro Box bolt spacing (maybe not the best first 5.9, but reasonably safe). No need for trad gear. Not sure on the history (if it was originally done with fewer bolts, etc.), and honestly do not intend to project a judgment on retrobolting for this climb.

Originally, gear was placed in a low pocket (usually a nut and a cam to hold the nut). But it was one necessary piece and the new bolt is better. This climb was no test piece and the gear was not 100%. The new separate anchor also is an improvement.
