Comments: The Soda Pocket campground was open for a while this summer but the road was closed on 10/6/13 for maintenance. With the road open it is a 10 minute walk to the wall!

Comments: I am curious, I am from Amarillo Texas and did some bouldering in the Cob Rock area. There are a lot of chalked boulders and not very many problem descriptions here in MP. I had a great time on the few boulders I tried (limited to sleeping pads), but I'ed like to know if you guys know what these boulders are or where I might find out?

Thanks, this is a linked picture:

Comments: Thanks for the suggestions guys, and no offense if you are in love with the route. I will be going back to the Sandias soon just not for this climb. I guess I was wrong to expect the quality to be like The Second Comming or Aviary(also classics?).

Cheers

P.S. On the descent from the ridge down to the SW Ridge I noticed what looked like the most perfect splitter I have seen in the Sandias. Is this an established route? It was off to the left down a gulley, on one of those smaller features. Prob... more >>

Comments: The sit start is now very hard with that broken hold, but it still goes. It May be harder than High On Fungi

Comments: The climbing in the canyon is seeing a renaissance this year. Old climbs are being rediscovered and entire new areas are being found. Traditional climbing is coming a long way with multiple lead-able crags being discovered. Bouldering is growing with at least one whole new area being established. The atmosphere is exciting and the climbing is getting more interesting. It seems that the climbing in the canyon can only get better!

Comments: Rock quality was terrible, the crux pitches where pretty fun but everything else to get to those pitches is kind of repetitive. I enjoyed how high everything feels but I don't understand why this is considered a classic.

Bottom line, huge ordeal to get up early and make the approach for low quality climbing/mountaineering. Not worth the trouble in my book.

No offense to the locals who rate it so well.

Comments: I agree and I have always known it as simply Yogi, I don't think that there well be any more problems put up on the boulder to get it confused with. Or maybe....

Comments: Dos Equis looks like it starts in the same area as Dos Mas but goes left, Dos Mas makes a big lunge/dyno to the big juggy aret rail visible on the right side of your picture and fallows an easy top out straight up from that..

Comments: I recommend rapping after the first pitch(note still untested) the second pitch is very loose and it seems more like 4th class scrambling until you get to the small headwall. With a 20-30 minute walk off just rappel.

Comments: Had a real scare on this route when at the last bolt a football sized foothold broke off and nearly hit my wife below. I would say continue to watch for choss to the left of the last two bolts.
