I believe that is one of the Gilman Tunnels in the Jemez Mountains which are about 2 hours NW of Albuquerque. The Sandia Mountains are basically east of Albuquerque.

On difficulty, it's hard 5.8 or average 5.9 tops.

Good shot! Is that a cable hanger?

Maybe it was put in by the second-ascent party? For comparison, I remember seeing an ancient bolt on the "Beckey Route" on Liberty Bell. If I recall correctly, it looked kind of like this one:

'course, the route I mention is pretty popular and so the bolt I saw could have been put in by a follow-up party. Anyone else familiar with Beckey's fixed pro? Or maybe Beckey frequents the web and could be asked.
