BETA PHOTO: Las Conchas Gateway Rock route topo photo created ...


Beautiful meadow climbing just near the creek. Be prepared for gawking and lots of questions ("who put those bolts up there?; how did you get the rope up there?; did you go to the top?) from the several hikers that use the trail into the canyon.

Getting There 

Follow the trail at the left side of the creek for about 100 yards. The crag is just to the left.

Featured Route For Gateway Rock
On Forest on a fine November day well before it was retro-bolted. Just about to get into the hand crackin'.

Forest 5.10b/c 6b 20 VII E2 5b  NM : Jemez Valley Area : ... : Gateway Rock
A steep, featured, formerly gear-protected route with cool tufa-like rails on the far right side of Gateway Rock. Figure out how to pull up off the ground to a chalked-up tooth and then get to a crack where a .5 camalot previously protected steep moves. Now a couple of bolts protect it. Continue up on nicely featured face and crack climbing passing a number of bolts as the crack gets wider (fist size) and steeper.

I left a rope in a blue rope bag at gateway crag yesterday (Saturday 4/21) and I checked this morning but it wasn't there. If you found the rope or if you know who did, please let me know. Thanks!

We found your rope. I can leave it at Stone Age the next time I am there. Would that work?
