A nice panel of steep rock in the middle sector of The Subdivisions. Unfortunately one must climb a forgettable bit of licheny slab to access the good climbing above. Still worth it though for the fun climbing above.

Getting There 

Follow the approach for The Subdivisons. Look for the obvious dark streak of Octogenarian Love Nest above a green/black lichen-covered slab. This is the Roost area.

Featured Route For The Roost
Getting into the meat of the route. February 2014....

Octogenarian Love Nest 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  NM : Jemez Valley Area : ... : The Roost
Climb up licheny rock and slab to obvious, steep black streak just right of faint corner. A tad sequential up high, perhaps. Feel free to use the crack to the left but that might feel pretty hard. A short little traverse back right at the top to the anchors. You may want to back clean the draw from the third or fourth bolt down low to reduce rope drag later....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
