This is a long & really fun route, with a beautiful, slightly overhanging headwall with small pockets, high off the ground. "Rock Climbing New Mexico" rates it 12a but it seemed a lot easier than that--there are no moves harder than 10+/11-, and if you step left halfway up the headwall, there is a pretty good rest. (I'm not saying it's not hard, it was plenty challenging for me--just not 12a. I found "Unruly Macaque" 11c, just down the way, to be significantly harder.)
This is just right of Brangus by the Horns (two routes right of Reddi-Whip), and just to the left of the obvious pocketed slab, Blood, Sweat and Steers. It has one bolt, followed by a chossy crack, a small roof, and then a beautiful headwall which appears very difficult from the ground. Long pitch.
a bunch of draws, one long sling for under the roof (or backclean the draw), and one or two friends in the 1.5-3 size range. 50 meter rope might not be long enough.
