At the end of almost every street that deadends into the Sandia foothills on the east side of town there is a collection of established boulder problems. The most popular of these is U-mound at the end of Copper. There are also a good collection of problema at the end of Indian School, the Tram Terminal and the Juan Tabo PG which is on the way up to the La Luz trailhead. I believe that there are also several problems developed in Lower La Cueva Canyon.
Driving along Tramway Blvd, turn east and drie the roads till they end.
