Ed cruises along the small holds after the crux of - <br />Where The Wild Things Aren't (5.11)

Where the Wild Things Aren't 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  NM : Santa Fe Area : ... : Grotto End (R. Side)
Nice and sustained route, with technical movement. Crux is lower on the route, and once past the mono, the worst is over. However, hold on, because it doesn't completely let up! The guidebook notes a difficult fourth clip, however, none in our party thought it was terribly difficult, though it may be if you are not solid at the grade....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM

Currently there is a project left of Tweak, it's bolted and has a red tag. I was hoping to send it this spring but was set back with an elbow injury. My hope is to get it done this coming fall. if someone feels this is unethical please contact me before you send it. If nothing else I would like to get some photos of the first ascent.

Not unethical at all when you put the effort into establishing the line. I hope your elbow continues to feel better so you can get back on the route.
