This climb, the rightmost of the 3 bolted routes on South Rock, is another overlooked climb at Tres Piedras. It's well-protected, on good rock, with fun climbing. It's an excellent choice for someone breaking into the 5.9 grade at TP.

Start just to the left of the Eagle's Nest crack.
Cruise up fun face climbing on good rock with good horizontal holds, you pass through some overlaps. The crux is pulling through a bulge up high and protected by a bolt. As with many climbs at TP, move left or right a few feet as it feels appropriate so as to find the easiest passage.


This is the right of the 3 bolted lines on the south face of South Rock. This climb begins just left of the obvious crack climb Eagle's Nest.

This is Unknown climb #6 in Taos Rock.

A common anchor for the 3 bolted climbs is reached by this route, and a single rope rappel gets you down.


4 bolts protect most of this route, but you'll likely place a couple pieces of gear (probably on the smaller side things, from TCUs up to #1 camalot).
