Domingo Baca Canyon is the major canyon through which the tram runs. The mouth of the canyon lies perhaps a half hour hike north of the Alleno Gallegos picnic area just off the east side of Albuquerque, and the canyon's upper reaches extend eastward to the ridge line of The Crest. Lower Domingo Baca Canyon roughly spans from the mouth of the canyon up to as far east as Hail Peak.
To get to the mouth of the canyon, one possibililty is to hike north from the Elena Gallegos Picnic Area; for this allow a little less than an hour. Another possibility is to hike south from the lower tram terminal of the Sandia Peak Ski & Tramway. Check a trail map for details.

This fine route, on good rock, is a truly excellent climb for the budding leader, but you've gotta have your head together for the slabby runout to the first bolt. Then follow the low-angle splitter cracks to the top. The route is a lot longer than it looks from the base, too, adding to the climb's appeal. Too bad it's guarded by the heinous approach.See the photo topo in the excellent online guide....[more] Browse More Classics in NM
