Yes willam your climb is amazing! It would be true New Mexico classic if it was not right next to the tower! It was like climbing a 30' tuffa arête! Great job and what is it's name?

Great Climb! Very unique movement and holds. Rock quality is still a bit marginal at the bottom but should continue to clean up.
