Description 

A smattering of boulders on either side of a ridge and a lower lump of boulders that is now marked as on Private Property, not sure about those. Some of the boulders have loads of nice black knobs on them making for some fun climbing. One boulder in particular has great rock and a couple of excellent problems. Because of the ridge some shelter from wind can be found. Not a lot of other climbers, though don't be surprised to see a little chalk and lots of hikers.

Getting There 

Turn east on Manitoba about half way between the stop sign to the north and I-40 to the south. Turn right @ T, then first L, then L @ T, road curves right and right again, last a greater than 90 L onto a road up to the trailhead parking. One could also follow the bike route signs.

Right Side Overhang V2 5+  NM : Albuquerque Area Climbing : ... : Boulder A
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
