Comments: Link ups are routesin my experience,and yes I agree third pitch is best and worth the frustration of climbing something climbed before, WE chalked this up good last year , and yes i still contend this is no second comming var mainly cause it takes you way off route for SC or SC VAR,, but Im sure the rock will be there this year , doesnt need bolt P3 goes 10 hardpro, thin lower face is xish though equalizing small cams is seeming to hold.

look for thin seams on lower face below big headwall led... more >>

Comments: The older sandia guide is an excellent guidebook for texans. new book sucks too though has pretty picture. we need ocd psyco climber photo geek in sandias to climb for about ten years straight for a good guide. Sooo many routes I love it. lots of loose rock you better goto Palomas much safer a bolt every six feet.
