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.
Follow the directions to the [ 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.
