Description 

A low-density, high-quality bouldering spot. More slopers than the usual Box fare.

North-facing and very exposed to wind and weather.

Getting There 

A high-clearance vehicle is helpful but careful driving will get a normal car up there.

Just before reaching the Major Wall parking, there is a road veering West (right) from the main road, going up the hill. Follow this road through a gate and then turn North at the interesection. Follow the road around the North side of the hill. Turn right off the road just under the mine and park near the end of the mine before the road fades away.

Hike West-ish to the North side of the obvious hill. The boulders are just over the shoulder. See the bouldering map on the main Socorro page.
