Featured Route For Major Wall
Page S. moving through the crux of the Demon.

The Demon 5.12d 7c 28 IX E6 6b  NM : Socorro Area : ... : Major Wall
A Socorro Classic! Make powerful sequential moves up a clean overhung wall. Start with easy moves up to a huge Hueco and clip the first bolt. From here get ready to crank. Angle left passing the second bolt and snag a rest at the large hueco, the only good hold on the route. Clip the third bolt and angle up and right to the 4th bolt. Pull the crux moves and it's over. Take a nap on the ledge and make a few easy moves past the 5th bolt to the anchors....[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.
