“Best GS line in the Jemez Mountains (IMHO).”— james marc beverly
Skin up the route and check for stability—ski crampons would be useful in hard conditions.
Once at the top, start off on a gentle slope on the broad shoulder. This gently gives was to more steep terrain on the flat face where one can really open it up for a long way. Then, bring it back under control to finish out through the trees and the flats. Revel in the accomplishment. Snap a photo if you have the restraint, I couldn't...it was that good.
