Comments: The U mound takes a beating again. This is another good reason to explore the other areas in the foothills. Far less likely to see this stuff at Simms, Fat City or the Gun. Those areas have better problems as well.

Comments: W, you know forgetting pain and difficulty is the key to longevity in the alpine and big wall game. Does open bivying really suck or is it a pleasant night under the stars?

Comments: Thanks for the vote of confidence and it may be more of an issue of getting to try, but I still think that boulder problem is tough. I was pleasantly surprised that the climbing up to the boulder problem is not really that hard and quite fun.

Comments: The better rock seems to be either on the ridge itself where it is getting weathered by wind or in a drainage where it is polished by water. I am not sure that helps, but it seems to lead to the better stuff. I may have seen that boulder if it had a steep north face but not much feature. My theory remains that if the boulder has one really nice problem then it is worth developing and other stuff naturally follows, but if there is not a line that is worth dragging a friend out to, then it is p... more >>

Comments: Nice job Mick. Best cragging pitch in the Sandias? I wish I could climb the thing clean.

Comments: There may be more good climbing in the area. I have not explored much but some of the higher stuff on the trail looks interesting and there may be some other stuff at the same elevation to the east.

Comments: Sure Claude, just follow around the old guys flashing all the problems. Thanks for submitting the photos. Keep looking around and I am sure you will find at least one sweet rock out there.

Comments: Isn't the classic arete just uphill from the streambed. If you are facing the streambed turn around and find the trail uphill. There is an overhanging arete with pockets that I remember as outstanding. I don't know the name, but the grade is around V5. It starts low left and goes up and right to a nice mantle finish.

Comments: I think it is the Fin and actually should be in the book since it is in the mix with the climbing. Maybe the problem is called ghetto simulator?

Comments: Lee is probably right, he has a far better memory than me for this stuff and I could have rested before doing the crux, but I could rest a week or two and still not climb 5.13. He also forgets how strong he has been/can be at times. Either way, they are probably some of the hardest moves I have climbed clean on a rope. Isn't mushroom roof an ancient pictograph of sweat, chalk and blood being protected by Texas State parks? Cheers.

Comments: I followed it clean after Lee led it and we figured since I did it it had to be 5.12. There was certainly a funky trick move in there, but I doubt it is 13-.

Comments: The directions should be edited to say, when driving north on 550, not south. The area is very cool. An overview map is needed to make sense of it. The land of the sit start.

Comments: The overview pics are helpful, but a visiting climber would really benefit from a simple topo, if nothing marking each boulder.

Comments: A simple topo would be nice. The stuff around the cragging is obvious, but otherwise a topo to just get you to the rocks can be very helpful.

Comments: Sit start. FA was Guns Gonzales, at least in the wave of most recent development. I think it is a cool problem. although the top is choss, the lower moves are pretty cool. I think Cody did some thin thing to the left.
