Socorro Bouldering Guide - Spook Canyon - Upper Spook
From the big Warm Up Boulder at the main Spook area, go East several
yards to the North-South trail. Follow this trail South and then
Southwest and uphill. The trail will go under an overhang (this is
the start to Red Dwarf) next to a bush, depositing you at Upper Spook.
Better Than Life Boulder

Big red boulder overhanging the approach trail. It has a sheer,
slightly overhung South face.

Around the corner uphill to the Left, on the small West face. Sit start in
the hole, go straight up.
"Tape your left fuck you finger or you'll regret it." - Peck
- Tempting Fate - V? bad landing Peck
I'm still not sure where this is, but Peck offers this:
"Also ontop of BTL boulder head down to edge look R, there is "Tempting Fate" (peck) self-explanitory." - Peck

Line of good holds over the hideous slab landing.
A good but scary dyno is to jump right to the lip from the
good holds down low.
