Amazing climbing on iron hard basalt. One of the best routes I have done on basalt in NM. Classic!


Climb up the obvious crack and move right making a dicey move past a bolt. Fire up steep, iron hard basalt past five more bolts to the anchors.

Beautiful route on excellent basalt.


Gear for the handcrack and eight quickdraws.

Bob, Great climb with great historic name. The web has several articles about it: "El Grito del Norte was a bilingual New Mexico newspaper co-founded by Elizabeth "Betita" Martinez and attorney Beverly Axelrod in 1968 as a vehicle to support the Alianza Federal de Mercedes. It expanded to cover the Chicano Movement in urban areas, workers' struggles, and Latino political prisoners, as well as Leftist causes. The paper ceased publishing in 1973." Viva El Grito.
