BETA PHOTO: The uphill face of The Wave boulder with the Core ...
Know the location of this area? Show us! We don't know it, but we're working on cool new features that need it!


This is the large boulder that sits up the ridge from the NASCAR Boulder about 100 yards or so. The face that you first come to is sunny and has 4 or 5 problems on it, a couple of slabs at the lower left then steeper problems as you work your way up and to the right culminating in a steep arete as the boulder turns the corner. On the uphill side is a short steep face with possibly the hardest problem at Ponderosa, The Core Problem V13 climbs through some very small edges and knobs in black rock. Also a convenient downclimb through the toilet bowl feature. The backside of the boulder is the wave itself, this wall has a traverse but the rock doesn't look very good. A couple of lines look as though they could go up the face but the landings tend to slope away. The last face as you work around the boulder does not have much to it.

Getting There 

From the NASCAR Boulder work you way around and up towards the ridge passing a few other boulders on your way. This boulder sits a little bit below the actual ridge itself but since the NASCAR Boulder is further below the ridge you end up walking more or less right to it.

Highball V3 V3-4 6A+  NM : Jemez Valley Area : ... : The Wave
Start on the munchy looking but actually quite solid rock and reach up for the Horizontal flared crack that runs into the right side of the cut out in the roof. Work your way left on the slopers to the cut out feature. Get your left foot up on the opposite side of the cut out and knee scum to reach up into a good side pull. Match hands and back step the horizontal to reach up into a juggy hueco near the top. A couple of easier moves lands you on top of the boulder. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
