Mike R. finishing up a great day at Area 37 with [...


A nice little crag about a mile east of the Las Conchas climbing area. This small crag has many good routes on the same type of rock as Las Conchas. Though the crag is small, there is a nice range in levels from 5.6 to 5.12b/c.

Getting There 

Follow the directions to the [[105845941] climbing area, then drive about a mile east of Las Conchas. Pull out on the north side of the road at mile marker 37. The wall will be obvious but is partially obscured by trees.

Follow a faint trail through the grass to a barbed wire fence. Jump across it and hike up the hill to the crag. Approach time is about one minute. It's a flip-flops kind of approach.

Leprosy 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- E4 6a  NM : Jemez Valley Area : Area 37
Beautiful, steeply overhung route at the far left side of the crag. Not as far left as Frosted Mini Wheats, or Mini Wheats, however. Sustained! Crux is near the top of the route. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM

A big chunk of rock came off of "Cyclic Loader" yesterday while two climbers were on it. It's safe to say the rock at Area 37 isn't of the highest quality and is more prone to breaking when it's been wet (like it has been recently.) Use caution at this area after it's been raining.
