Comments: Nice work on the free variation you guys did Mick! Apologies for any confusion. I guess it was kind of a team effort creating those lines between all of us and John Kear as well.

I had forgotten about your bolts until I read your comment. I now remember seeing the bolts when I went back with Evan to do Pantomime. They looked like they are to left of where I went at the top when I did Cabron. I had stayed in the crack system. So, I was thinking of your line as it's own variation not knowing wha... more >>

Comments: I believe the new Sandia guidebook by Mick Schine has this route listed as Cabron or something confusing...Cabron is a AID route. The 5.10 free line is called Pantomime and starts in the gulley across from A Date With Death. Cabron starts to the left of the wide crack which is left of Pantomime.

Comments: I've done the sit start that begins to the right for years. Makes it a fun problem. I start sitting on the rock and work up the arete/slopers & traverse left to a jug then into the start holds of Wounded Knee.

Comments: Cool to see one of the more obscure routes posted. The first pitch you have marked is also the first pitch of Last Dance 5.7 A3(which is a fun line with a short steep aid section and a super cool crystalline pitch up high).

I climbed the big left facing corner solo last fall. I thought it had been climbed before, but I trundled several loose rocks which were un-avoidable. So I don't think it has been climbed before. Almost finished with a new route that starts in the big corner.

Comments: Loved seeing it going down in the day...most likely with no pads. Makes me feel light duty.

Recently started going to the U again and noticed between visits that someone is intentionally destroying holds.

Comments: The New Route has been sent and is called DAISY. We touched up the first pitch of Raven Steals The Sun. There is one really good lost arrow below the crux now. The crux protects great with small wired nuts. Coming to the pitch fresh I was able to detach myself from the first ascent when i did it soo many times. I feel it's 12a. Hope you guys enjoy the new line!
