About to top out on Muff Diver
Closed. You will be cited if parked at trailhead. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Muff Diver was so aptly named because of what it resembles. Sorry if it offends anyone, its just an observation. Its a fun somewhat overhung route with a lot of sharp cracks to wedge on the way up. You can use the reverse wall to rest at the top, but I wouldn't recommend it, as one girl we were with ended up getting herself wedged somehow and we had to hike up and around, tie off, and rap someone down next to her to push her out of the wedge...it was weird.


Location 

You have to either down climb or take a hike around to climb down...unless you have already top roped the line to the right, at which when you top out you can clip in and rap down.


Protection 

No pro at all. Free-Solo it

For more details on the closure/access in this area of Cimarron Canyon, see this Forum

Better (and legal) summertime sport cragging near Taos can be found at Comales Canyon, and at Red River. Go there instead.

I feel I should edit this "5.7 PG13", "24 ft trad route" with "no pro at all".

Ugh. Leave it. Change type=boulder and give a V0-.
