Near the crux

Description 

This technical line ascends the wide black streak right of Roadside Distraction. This route is a waterfall when it rains, so keep that in mind. The route begins with an easy scramble up chossy ledges, before rearing up to near vertical. Long reaches between good crimps ascend the mossy wall to a crux near the top. Fortunately virtually all of the key holds have been scrubbed free of moss, so the route is not as mossy as it appears.


Location 

Ascends the wide black streak right of Roadside Distraction


Protection 

5 bolts with a 2 bolt anchor (count is off in Jemez Rock).
