A single pitch slice of QUALITY rock.

Getting There 

Find the La Luz trailhead at the South end of the Sandia Crest Parking area. Hike down the Crest Spur Trail to the junction with the La Luz and head on the La Luz. Several switchbacks down the trail you will come upon the first talus slope. Continue down two switchbacks from this point and you will come upon a faintish climbers trail that will head North, around 100 feet, to the base of the crag.

A well protected crack on good rock. Touted by the Sandia Rock guide as "The best 5.8 in the Sandias". The crack begins at the right end of the formation and continues to a right facing dihedral. Midway up this dihedral (not far past a piece of fixed pro- an old stuck cam), you will step left, out of the dihedral, and onto the face. Continue up the crack system to the top of the climb. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
