Trend left on biggish ledges to the first bolt. Then head straight up past 3 more on good flat holds to the top of the wall. This is a good easy sportish route, possibly the easiest in the Sandias. This fact does not mean that it is a great lead for beginner though as the wall is low angle.

There is a bolted anchor to the right of this route's anchor that can be used to set up a 5.6ish TR.


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. Sailor Slang is the right hand of the two bolted lines.


4 bolts and chain anchors.
