Start in the next obvious dihedral left of Putterman Cracks, and work your way up slabs with gear in a thin hands crack to a big roof. Turn this on the right (crux). Continue to the top, going generally straight up, passing a bolt on the way through a steeper section with big jugs.

Another decent crack at BONP, but it doesn't see much traffic. Longer than the other easier climbs here (Putterman Cracks, L-Dopa) and a step less difficult.


This climb is 10' left of Putterman Cracks and is listed as route #1 in Jemez Rock.

It is probably the left-most crack/corner one would consider climbing at BONP.


1 set nuts, 1 set cams to 3". Maybe a #4 cam.
There's now a 2-bolt anchor at the top equipped for lowering.

There are two more ways to start this climb if you're top-roping or into unprotected leading/soloing:

The face just left of the dihedral is fun and of similar difficulty.

Also, moving right after the first couple moves and pulling a big roof is probably 11+ or 12- and is a one-move-wonder/better-bouldered-than-climbed option.
