A nice, sheltered corridor running north-south, with a few excellent problems. The ones in the corridor itself are pretty much all hard - V6 and up (except apparently there's a V3+ hiding in the middle - see problem description by LeeAB). There are several closely-spaced easy/moderate problems at the north exit of the corridor, on the west side.
From the upper cluster "base camp," head west (toward town) along the base of the manatee, then climb up to the right into the corridor.

Heal hook right and pull up to a higher sidepull then stab at a higher edge with the left, the sooner you get to the good left hold the better. Another heel hook and reach high and right into the OW for an edge. Then start trying to find holds on the slab and still see your feet....[more] Browse More Classics in New Mexico
