Solid rock with boxy crimps and ledges. Numerous sport climbs, top rope routes and a handful of trad. lines. Royal Robbin's visited this canyon for a short time while stationed at Ft. Bliss Military base in the mid 1950's. Soon after Robbin's found himself drawn to the Organ Mountain range (see New Mexico, Organ Mountains).
