2 pitch 5.7. Originally done in 4 pitches. Approach on La Luz trail and cut up a climbers trailbefore reaching a "look out" rock after 5miles or so, of climbing. Start at a small ledge up to a chimney. The 1st belay is bolted. The top is a bit sketchy as you have to traverse on some blocky rock to the rappel which is in a notchfacing north. I think 2 raps get you to the bottom (been a while). Watch for snow in early season rappel. Check Sandias guide book for more info.

Okay route... fairly good pro and some good dihedral moves to start but quickly turning into awkward climbing in bad chimney grooves. Above the second squeeze a direct line at about 5.8 is best to take you to the cave ledge, otherwise it's weird wandering. Decent climb....poor exposure, never really felt like we were off the ground. Kinda grungy.
