Comments: A bit sequency for 5.9! A little more difficult than its neighbor Garbageboy. A nice route, worth doing.

Comments: Although John recommends a light, single set, we took a double set of the small to medium gear (C3s to #1 Camelot). We were happy we did (I can be a bit of a ninny when it comes to run outs! I like to see gear below me.)! My partner described this route as "warpy moople on steroids". He was referring to a few heady run out sections on the faces that are certain to grab your attention! They are not difficult, just heady. If you climb 5.11, you will be fine.

A nice route though. The travers... more >>

Comments: This route made for a great morning in the Sandias. Most of the rock quality was great, and the third pitch was thought provoking with all the balancy movement required. Small gear is helpful on the third pitch.

I am questioning if we may have been off route for the final fourth pitch because we did not see any bolted anchor and belayed from a tree at the summit.

Climbing the third pitch, it appears that there is another bolted route just to the right of Big T that joins it at the third belay ... more >>

Comments: A .12b bolted on lead! That's amazing. Please, share the pictures! Is there a good stance to put a bolt in before the crux?

For arguments sake, should this area be listed in the "International" section? Is it on U.S. land or not? I always thought not. Just curious.


Tribes are still part of the US and must abide by national law. However, they are not bound to the laws of the states they exist in.

Comments: This route was awesome IMO. Not sure where you might add any supplemental gear aside from the crack at the beginning. The first few moves present with an interesting stemming problem but all that is needed is a good spotter. After that there are HUGE holds to the first bolt. I could not decide if I liked this or Malice In Bucketland better, both were beautiful routes! This one felt a little more difficult, with smaller edges on it than that one though. Also the movement is less obvious, and the route i... more >>

Comments: May want to stay off this route for a few weeks until nesting season is over! There is a nesting pair of hawks on a ledge in the middle of the first pitch. I did not see them until I got swooped when I came within about 5 feet of their nest. It wasn't bad enough that I was about 40 feet run out past my last piece of gear! It scared the hell out of me. It circled and screamed at me as I downclimbed the route all the way to the first bolt at the bottom. A bit unnerving to say the least.

Comments: Be careful at the top! A friend of mine got up as far as you could possibly get up (touching the top rim of the climb), put his hand onto a piece of loose rock, and took flight as it broke off. Since the last bolt was so far beneath him he sailed nearly to the low angle ledge at the beginning of the climb! He was fine, thankfully, though it was an exiting fall!

Comments: Admittedly, I have questioned whether routes in the Navajo area should be posed onto this site. We know that some people are going to climb in these areas regardless of legality, but I wonder if having this information so readily available will increase the numbers of people climbing in these areas? Do we want to play a part in increased visitation to areas where climbing is technically not allowed?

That said, I have resisted commenting on, deleting, or changing anything on this area because a... more >>

Comments: This, and Chicks with Ricks, were in my opinion the best of their grade at the Cockscomb crag. With all the crimping and side pulling, these two routes offer some diversity in movement.

Watch the crux at the top, it's certainly a thinker.

Comments: Agreed, felt more difficult than rated. Would be even more difficult for shorter people. Long and reachy moved definitely favor those with a longer reach.

Comments: I am in agreement that the blocky, trashy looking rock at the bottom of the route detracts from the quality of the route. Felt OK after clipping the first bolt though I knocked off a small block prior to getting there. I was treading lightly so it was of no consequence but the thought was in the back of my mind (being someone who has has more than one fall resulting from broken rock). The top was good, with fun movement up the arete. Just be aware, especially in the springtime!

Comments: Felt the first bolt was in a good spot, keeping you safe for the first crux through the bulge. Climbs a bit like most of the routes in this area with lots of crimps and a side pull here and there. Though I did not know at the time, I guessed this might be a Vaino route, as he has a signature style of route setting: camo bolt hangers and safely protected. Would be difficult to take any large whippers on one of his routes! Makes it great for one breaking into leading this grade!

The best 8 in the canyon! LOL, with a total of three, that is saying alot.


I can't say much regarding it being the best in the canyon, but I thought it was certainly better than Fossil Fuel, which was the only other 5.8 I did while I was there. I said one of the best of its grade in New Mexico, which really is not saying much either, I have not seen many great 5.8 sport routes in New Mexico (I'm comparing it with places in at my end of the woods, i.e: Datil, El Ri... more >>

Comments: Hey Ryan, have you ever gotten back onto this route?

This was an interesting day for both of us. I was visiting my family (I now live in New Mexico) and had nobody to climb with, so I met up with Ryan (pretty easy to find partners on the internet!). Fortunately, my #00 is still in OK shape despite being a bit scratched up by Ryan's final whipper:)

I was a little concerned about the walk back to the car over the tallus leading to the area. But Ryan made it just fine. Any remaining proble... more >>

Comments: This area is nice to visit if you have a day to kill, and you can't go anywhere else for various reasons (tweaked elbow and can't climb anything that will make it worse, weather, etc.). The hike into DB canyon is nice and with beautiful scenery. The climbing is fun, but short. But that last bit, the part from the trail to the separate crags, was enough to make me not want to go back more than once! If you like adventurous bushwhacking through the native poky things that infiltrate the lower Sand... more >>

Comments: This would be a great route if more continuous. Pretty much a one move wonder, once past the second bolt the moves are perhaps a little tricky through the dihedral, requiring more balance and technique than strength. The top is just a long slab separated by ledges that seems to go on forever!

Comments: This route is one of the best 5.8's, if not the best, that I have climbed in New Mexico. Long (compared to most New Mexico routes), with flawless stone, it is not to be missed!
