Fun low angle climbing on sloping holds and sidepulls which an out of place knob jug at the 3rd bolt. Stay a little right of the bolts between the 2nd and 3rd bolts though one could really climb anywhere.

A little sporty, but that is normal for the Sandias. There is an anchor to the left of this routes anchor to set up a TR on a route that is supposed to be 5.6ish.


The first wall you go past after leaving the La Luz on your way to Hole in the Wall. About 50 feet from the La Luz trail, the approach trail drops down a hillside as it contours along the base of this 40-60 foot tall wall. Mouth of a Sailor is the left hand of the two bolted lines.


5 bolts and chain anchor.
