Description 

Sheltered boulders along the bottom of the Valley starting from the parking area and moving up valley towards the hairpin in the main road.

Landings are typically flat and problems are for the most part moderate with a few exceptions. Boulders are in the midrange in height 12-15 feet.

The first boulder, Parking Boulder is right by the car has a slab that faces the valley and a steeper face that faces up valley. There is a very difficult SDS on the steep arete.

The next boulders are side by side on the left of the valley. The first one (on the right) is huge and as of yet does not have anything on it. The second one which sits below and to the right has some thin technical face problems.

The next boulder that you come to has a long, low angle face that you will see and wraps around the right arete to another shorter face. Moderate warm-ups and variations abound.

There are most likely more boulders as one continues up the valley floor. This should get you started though.


Getting There 

From where you park at the end of the side road the first boulder is right in front of you and a few more boulders are spaced out as you walk up the valley floor.

Some interesting movement on this one and a harder topout than what you usually get at Ponderosa.From the high starting hold on the arete make a wierd cross with your left hand to a two finger pocket gaston. Set your feet and reach up to an edge just below the lip. Reach up to small holds on the slab and topout....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
