This is the section of cliff to the NW from the downclimb. There are roughly 25 excellent, though short routes. This is the most convenient crag at Cochiti, where it is easy to setup TRs on many routes, there is a nice 'scene' at the cliff base, shade trees, and a good diversity of grades is available.

This sequential line is a classic Cochiti test-piece. Half the trouble is deciding which of the heavily chalked pockets visible from the ground are best left unused. The other half is keeping it together on the final, tricky slab move just below the anchors. The technical crux is reaching the obvious S-shaped crack at midheight, where a great rest gives way to the sinister, slabby redpoint crux just above....[more] Browse More Classics in NM
