Start directly behind tree and follow a small right facing corner up fifteen feet then traverse right under small roof and climb face to corner at ledge. Now follow A double crack system caped by small roof above. Exit left around roof then continue up crack above. Good pro up to the roof. Marginal shallow pro immediately before and after roof then decent pro to a two bolt anchor. There is an optional 5.9+ bolted start to the right.


Left side of Fire Wall. About 8 feet left of In Descent


Standard rack. This is the only trad route on the fire wall.

Right ON!... I guess EZ rider shooting down at the Stagecoach springs, just being in the area, always sparks memories of Hopper and Fonda

Thanks Craig. Dennis was laid to rest in Taos and had a memorial at The St Francis Church in Ranchos De Taos at the same time we were putting up these routes this past memorial day. He has had a presence on and off in Taos since his first trip here for the filming of Easy Rider. RIP
