Friendly slab climb with large crimps on the southwest corner of the boulder. It is climbed often, so chalk marks are evident year round. A couple flaky spots towards the end, right below the black horizontal streak on the top. They are not terribly loose, but be careful anyway....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Mexico
