Description 

A bunch of scattered boulders, ranging from 10 to 25 feet high. Weather changes pretty quick so check the weather before heading up there. Its quite the approach so for those who like to park and climb don't bother. Its also quite hot in the summer bring water. No established routes but there is some great moderate to hard climbs.


Getting There 

Its about 2.5 miles up the Dog Canyon trail. Once you see the 2.5 mile marker the boulders will appear on your right cant miss them. Gorgeous views as well!

To get to the lower trail head, from Alamogordo take US 54 south from the point where it crosses US 70. After about 12.6 miles, a sign indicates the left turn to the park. This road dead-ends after about 3.9 miles at Oliver Lee Memorial State Park. The trail head is behind the visitor center (VC); walk as if you were going to enter the VC, but instead of going in the door, continue past it, and the trail head is around the corner.
