Description 

This is a fun climb. Very easy, and great for beginner Trad leads. Still needs some cleaning but holds are large and positive.


Location 

In between Este Es and Fred's Friendly Face. There is a crack system that you can easily step into running up to a small overhang. Go up and around to the ledge at the top.


Protection 

Up to #3 C4. Gear anchor that only placement is to traverse over on top ledge because crack ends and there are not bolted anchors. Walk off the top and around to the left to come back to the base.

Better (and legal) summertime sport cragging near Taos can be found at Comales Canyon, and at Red River. Go there instead.
