Ken Kisiel on the first ascent.


Follow thin cracks to really nice ledge after the second bolt. Rest up for the blunt arete/face moves above to the anchors. The crux for me was clipping and moving past the last bolt.


This route is listed as route 24 in Marc Beverly's "Jemez Rock & Pecos Area" guidebook published by Sharp End. It's the next to last climb on the far right end of the Poultrygeist area. NOTE: In Beverly's book the route is listed as 5.8. This is incorrect.


8 bolts to springed cold shuts.

I toproped this one. Typical hard 10c at Coxcomb. Excellent climbing for the good climbers. A must for solid 10 leaders.

FA was by Rick and Leslie Bradshaw, in 2000. I might have been helping out that day too, but I can't remember. I did help Rick put up about 10 of the Cockcomb routes.

I thought this was noticeably easier than the other 10c's at the Poultrygeist (which I thought were all a bit hard for the grade). Really fun climbing with some amazing pockets at mid-height. The start is really neat too, but I can see how some would find it frustrating.

Excellent route. Felt easier than chicks with ricks, but that may just be the scary factor...

The beginning is great fun... with a stick clip, and a little scary without (or so I've heard).

Just to get the record straight, and to recognize Ken Kisiel's efforts/contribution, the establishment and FA's were actually by Ken Kisiel and me in 2000.
