Comments: No problem. I've changed the caption and moved the photo to the Sandias area instead.

Comments: In addition to the route George describes between Chronostasis and Crestone Puddin', Walt established another new line between Imitation Strawberry and Goiter Grabber called Bloody Turnip (5.10+). Fun line with a distinct crux at the bulge.

The shorty in the small bowl left of the Black Cave is unnamed as of yet but goes at 5.5 or 5.6 and is super fun! It's like navigating a maze of huge, solid plank-like cobbles protruding from the wall. Also, left of this route in the bowl area is a short, sharp are... more >>

Comments: Good news, the seeping holds at the start were temporary, just lasting a couple weeks after the heavy rains in August. It's all dry at the start now.
The wrap-around handlebar hold at the second-to-last bolt is one of the cooler holds in the Jemez.

Comments: Hey skelldify, my wife, at 5'5" with a -1 AI has beta for it that works. Problem is, we climb the route only a few times a year and have to relearn the beta each time. I tend to think it's a bit easier for short folks, actually. But 6'1" with a +4.5 AI would be nice too!

Comments: I don't believe this to be Muralla Grande and the Second Coming but can't identify the formation. Anyone?

Comments: I think this was originally rated 5.12b as the FA party stayed on the face for the crux. But if one moves left to the arete at the crux (which felt natural to me), it climbs at 5.11-.

Comments: A reminder to all climbers, the Jemez Cave (a.k.a. Crystal Cave) is closed to all activities including climbing. This is a sensitive, tenuous situation and climbing in the cave reflects very poorly on the climbing community. The cave is obviously closed with signage and physical barriers in place so there's no excuse for continuing to climb here. Please do the climbing community a favor and avoid this cave.

Comments: Mighty fun line. Not your typical sport route with a good bit of finger crack climbing. In that vein, 5.10 leaders may desire a finger-sized piece between the third and fourth bolt.

Comments: I agree with you George. This is a one-star route at best and I think the additional stars from others here are actually meant for the much better line to the left, Goiter Grabber. My mislabeling with the tags has got things confused.
I believe both John's and Ed's comments here should be on the Goiter Grabber page. Sorry for the confusion, all.

Comments: I saw the news reports off the toppling and noticed most of the stories using this photo as the "before" shot. Sad news but a fine reminder that geologic time includes now.

Comments: Awesome Rich! I'm really glad to hear you enjoyed it out there...it's a sweet spot with some entertaining climbing. I'm already looking forward to fall colors (and temps) there. Gorgeous. Bummer to hear about the bees on Pickled Punks...I think that's a great little line! Glad you survived.
We'll check on the tags and clear up any confusion the next time we're out but I'm sure you're right about the mix up.

Edit: Confusion has been cleared up. Tags are now in the proper places. :)

Comments: As you will probably find out, our suggested ratings here are certainly just ballpark guesses and most likely soft.
As the routes clean up and chalk up, I fully expect the routes to feel easier. Routes tend to feel a bit harder when they're brand new, one is a bit cautious about pulling hard and the best holds aren't chalked up.

Comments: Seems to be confusion on this route and the next right one. The first route right of the 5.9 was in the sustained 5.10/10+ range and has the cobbles of ill reput name tag on it. It was one of the best i did that day. I'm guessing this one is "cobbles.....". There was another steep route to the right and maybe it is goitter grabber? That one has the. 5.8 to the right and could have an easier escape to the right. I didn't do the right of the 2. We need Jason to chime in and clarify ... more >>

I toprope soloed this route 3 times yesterday and think it's a 1.5 star route...

I think you missed out on the primary reason this route is so rewarding and good...leading it with its creative and intermittent gear. The rock quality and moves are way good but the real charm in the route comes when you lead it.

Comments: Use caution on the dirt FS road 6 as two new cattle gates have been added as of July 2014. In particular, the first gate, about a quarter mile from highway 60, is a barbed wire and wooden posts gate with no reflectors. It's nearly invisible at night and on a stretch of road where most are used to driving fast.

Comments: Some quick food beta:
  • The "honey balls" for dessert at the Aegean restaurant (south end of the main drag in Masouri) are not to be missed!
  • Barbra Yiannis restaurant (northern end of the main drag in Masouri) is fantastic for lunch or dinner. Super friendly staff with great, outdoor, covered seating right along the road.

Comments: Oh, yes, Nathan, that fifth bolt is missing its hanger currently. I've been meaning to replace the hanger but haven't been back up there yet. Hope it goes well for you next time!

Comments: Hey Nathan, I don't think the bolt protecting the crux is missing (it was there a few weeks ago when I last climbed the route.) As I recall it's just below the crux bulge. I replaced that bolt a few years ago with a higher-quality 1/2" bolt after the original, weird bolt had taken a beating from falls.
It is a bit of a fall but a clean fall, if I recall correctly. Allison (the one pictured here) does the crux by getting her right hand in the crack and laying it back to get above the bulge. I'm ... more >>

Comments: The fifth bolt is missing its hanger. Normally I'd have fixed this but didn't have a nut that fit the bolt. I'll work to fix it next time I'm out there. Given the issues with many of the bolts/hangers on this route, I'm inclined to rebolt the entire route, actually.

will be here in the next few days, what's the most recent word of camping in Las Conchas?

A couple of years ago (at least) the forest service closed all camping along the river at Las Conchas in the first 1.6 miles (or so, maybe further) from the highway. So effectively no camping. But there are forest service campgrounds not too far away. Look for Redondo Campground or San Antonio Campgrounds to the west a number of miles.
