|The Rim of the World
This south-west facing crag is the best of pecos. Its has the best view of the high peaks, and you will probably never see another climber there. It hosts the longest routes in pecos and of the best quality in pecos.
To get there, when facing cathedral rock look right and count 2 telephone poles down. at the base of the telephone pole hike straight up the ridge for about 40 minutes. DO NOT hike up the gully to the right of cathedral rock. When you reach the base of the cliff you are on the far right side of the cliff. the routes extend a long ways to the north.

This is a great little cliff although the approach is steep. Most of the routes are not immediately adjacent to each other. Climbs, left to right, include:
Static Cling: 5.11b/c (bolts), quality--watch the lower with a 60m rope for SC and FG, you cannot reach the belay bolt but easy ledges above.
Fall Guy: 5.9 (bolts), quality
Lucky Boy: 5.10b/c (bolts), quality--a bit to the right of Fall Guy
Not Tobie: 5.12a (bolts), start just left of the cave.
Tobie: 5.12b (bolts), direct start to Tobie.
Project: 5.11?, anchor left of CR.
Christina's Roof: 5.11b/c (bolts)
These are the first climbs one comes to after the approach. One must traverse left and downhill to reach the other routes.
Double Clutch: 5.11c (bolts), quality
Rosie Wants Me Home; 5.10b (bolts)
Linda's Lament: 5.10c (bolts), trend right to finish climb (same anchor as Rosie).
Miguel's Warmup: 5.10a/b (mixed), gear in the crack start
Access Card: 5.9+ (mixed), this is the rightmost route and can be used to TR the above three routes.
