Location: NM : Jemez Valley Area : Las Conchas : Cattle Call Wall Area : Pie In Your Eye (5.6)

Comments: The real Pie In Your Eye ascends the diagonal leftward crack system to the right of this bolted route. It is a trad route and use to have two bolted anchors at the very top of the wall. I think they were chopped at some point.

Comments: Great shot utilizing the kelvin temperatures of the evening. This I believe is Affirmative action from the looks of it. Waiting to procrastinate does not have the ever increasing slab to overhang out the left like this shot shows. It is a very aesthetic photograph.

Comments: This route is challenging and out of character for The Dungeon. Don't do it if you do not like "no holds", and balance climbing. It is worth doing once but is not that much fun. I also broke off some rock. It might be better after it cleans up a bit.

Comments: I like the exposed traverse that includes a yucca. Worth the trouble.

Comments: I have the required gear for this route. It will be completely equipped soon. The single bolt is only single but will hold a large truck. So please be patient, and do the climb.

Comments: Climbers beware. We ran into a beautiful green rattlesnake at the bottom of Blackballed ,after an ascent and hanging out while observing the sound of a soft rattle that resembled the sound of a cicada. It ventured out from under the rocks at the bottom of the climb and started ascending the corridor between Rad Wall and Gnar Wall. If you bring children to this crag just be aware. This is rattlesnake season in Northern New Mexico, so keep your eyes peeled and climb safely. They most likely are al... more >>

Comments: Awesome route!!! Bring Camalots: 1-#2 with a shoulder runner, 3-#4, 1-#5, and 1-#6. One of the best ticks anywhere.

Comments: This is still a trad route with challenging moves and pro. Not as dirty as the description leads you to believe. The crux is the exit move over the bush. Bring a #5 Camalot for the top.

Comments: Last time I checked, Banana Rama needed some bolt repair upgrades. Kind of sketchy. Good route though. Worth upgrading. There is great bouldering for the kids in the canyon bottom. It is even a great place to hang out and read a book.

Comments: A variation would be to continue past the anchors and merge with, and finish on Little Viking's anchors.

Comments: Aaron, if you are going to take it upon yourself and retrobolt a route that didn't need it, do it right. It sounds like it is more dangerous than the original line. Don't be lazy. Better yet, leave it alone. It had already been done. Go find a new line, there is plenty of rock out there.

Comments: Karl,
I don't remember a sling on Highway To Hell when we did it. You must be thinking of a different line. I know there was a sling on the offwidth left of Sun Devil. And the arete to the right had four bolts on it with a biner on the last one. That section was 5.7. I don't know who pt those in.

Comments: If you do happen to establish new lines on this wall, cool. But please clean as much as possible before you actually install bolts and call it done. Be patient with it and do a good and thorough job. Don't just assume that it will clean up with the climbing of others on lead. This puts not only the climber, but the belayer in real danger. I have always believed that the helmet was a mandatory piece of gear at Diablo, especially the Winter Wall. Nuff' said.

Comments: Jason wrote: The other anchors are pretty much straight up about another 30'. You can see them from the top of Naked Lunch. I presume they were used for the original cleaning and establishing of Highway...

Highway to Hell was put up ground up and there is only one set of anchors that we put in at about 130'. We cleaned the route after the anchors were installed. As for most routes on this wall, they will probably always need a bit of cleaning every year with the freeze/thaw occurrences.

Comments: This might get two stars if it had a direct anchor a little higher than where you traverse to BMM. The climb is fun but the traverse unnatural and contrived. Cammo what were you thinking on this one?

Comments: This is really good right now and currently the crux is the spicy top out. Some #4 and #5 Camalots would be useful for an immediate belay off of the top, or do the regular slog up and left to a nice live tree that you can rappel off of. Don't forget to be stealthy on this one as the guards are touchy about the bridge. It is well worth the effort though.

Comments: There is currently ice on the bottom and some snow/frozen mud on other parts. We were out there yesterday and it was in form to kick our butts. It might be harder than M7. It definitely requires some endurance. Go do it Marc. Tell us what grade you think it is. There is also more route potential to the left of the falls up the overhanging rock, M10 or harder maybe?

Comments: This line still needs a good deal of cleaning. Be sure to use caution when ascending this. Test your holds before you use them.

Comments: This area is known to most locals as the North Road bouldering Area which has two sides to it(east of the road and west of the road) The real Pueblo bouldering area is east of Diamond Dr. next to the old Pueblo Middle School, in Pueblo Canyon proper, and parts of School Canyon.

Comments: This is reffered to as the Handrail Traverse. If your traversing and your feet are on the Handrail, it is known as the Mountaineer.
