This route is in your face crimping nearly the entire way. If you just stopped by on your way back from Enchanted Tower this thing will feel pretty hard for the grade. Like most routes here, this is essentially a long boulder problem with small sharp holds and few rests. Rather technical.


This is at the far right end of the wall, 2nd route from the right. There's a huge flat boulder just above the start that's excellent for viewing and/or TR belaying.

I found this route to be more powerful than technical, but maybe I just substituted power for technique. This route packs alot for only being 35 feet long. Hard crimping and several long deadpoints passing the 2nd and 3rd bolts.

I found it technical but my beta apparently was completely different than DTP's. After finally sending my fingers were close to bloody. The crimps are pretty sharp.

Yeah, I sliced into the pad of a finger on my left hand, and had little bruises on several other fingertips. Climbing was so engrossing I didn't notice the pain until I got back to the ground, though. Another funky Socorro classic! I'm upping the ante on stars.
