Featured Route For Major Wall
Linda Wong making the last hard, long move onto the upper head wall.

Bats out of Hell 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  NM : Socorro Area : ... : Major Wall
Climb a broken intermittant crack system with a lot of dicey lay backs and big moves. Once past the 5th bolt get a great rest and make easier moves up past one more bolt to the anchors. Very sequential with a surprise move before the end of the difficult climbing, makes this a difficult onsight. May be wet after rain....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM

Working backwards from 09) Pimp Daddy, the routes are...
08) Pimpin' anin't Easy 5.14b or c
07) Not sure of the name, Supposed to be 5.13, Timmy route
06) Not sure of the name, Supposed to be 5.12b but the start seemed more V8ish to 5.12 climbing, Timmy route
05) Not sure of the name, 5.11+
04?) There may actually be another route in here, but the one that starts on a crack/ramp that angles up and left 5.11- or + depending on which way you go.
