Pueblo Canyon Areas Rock Climbing
Clinging to the slopers on The Donkey Punch.
Pueblo Canyon is the main tuff canyon running through the center of Los Alamos, and has interesting climbing both within the main portion of Pueblo Canyon, as well as in the smaller tributary side canyons, such as Acid Canyon and School Canyon. The rock quality is highly variable from crumbly to mediocre.
A lot of climbing has been done in this area, including fun streambed bouldering, seldom-visited cracks up to 120' tall, occasionally formed short but fun ice climbs, and a few recent mixed/dry-tooling climbs have been put up. Very little of the developed climbing so far has been documented (to date), but maybe MountainProject will emerge as a good resource for sharing this information. Much potential for future climbs remain.
Go explore- have fun!

Start on a low undercling on the right side of the Knob Goblin' boulder (aka Waterfall Boulder). Move straight up and over the roof, avoiding the arete on the right. Continue through long moves straight up, and top out. Very fun dynamic movement but somewhat contrived: both the featured water rut to the left and the arete to the right are off....[more] Browse More Classics in NM
