Really thin moves on a smooth face lead to a tough roof to enjoyable arete climbing above to the anchors. A large block at the roof offers nice holds all around but just appears to be sketchy. I tried not to pull on it too hard!
This is the farthest right climb in the Poultrygeist area. This route is listed as route 25 in Marc Beverly's "Jemez Rock & Pecos Area" guidebook published by Sharp End. NOTE: In Beverly's book the route is listed as 5.8. This is incorrect. (I chose this "5.8" as my warm-up before quickly realizing it was NOT 5.8!) Ha!

FA was by Rick 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.

The start of this thinkg is a bit whack. Obviously the idea is to start on the arete, where there are virtually no holds. I used the arete and the crack to the right, which is a bit weak. Middle and top of this route is awesome.
