Description 

The area consiting of the ridge up to and the first flater area. Many small boulders and a few bigger guys. Lots of knobs, but the surrounding rock is generally grainy. The climbing can be pretty good though as the knobs are generally solid.

Many dispersed problems on several boulders that have been "put up" and subsequently forgotten through out the years, typical of the foothills.


Getting There 

Start up the ridge and follow pictures or directions to each indivdual boulder.

The crux is keeping your feet on through the first few moves. Heel or toe hooking is useful here. Starts lowsih on a right knob and left in the flared crack with a knob. Make a long move up to another knob and work your feet around so that you can move your other hand up to match and move to a higher knob. Continue up bigger holds to the top. Beware the "Sandias solid" flake near the top on the right that you don't really want to pull on if you can avoid it....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
