Right next to Yellow Pages at East Animas, this is the next best beginner trad route in Durango. It is a little dirty but nothing compared to the Fishers!
Look for the perfect, 25 foot hand crack.
A standard rack will suffice. Two bolt anchor at the top. Long runners to extend the anchor if top roping.

I agree wholeheartedly with the description. Nice beginner trad lead, right up there with yellow pages in East-A.
The handcrack is really fun (I placed one BD #0.75, one #1, and one #3, all in that order, IIRC). After that, there are two rest stops (ledges), where you advance up the rest of the crack through small overhangs to a two-bolt anchor. Not nearly as hard as the left X, so I would rate it 5.6.
