Description 

Excellent granite bouldering along the trail to the Questa Dome.

Getting There 

From Taos: Take NM 522 north past the village of Questa. 6 miles past Questa take a right at a sign to El Rito. Go just under a mile to where the road turns (at a house) to dirt. Veer right and then climb up the steep road for just under a mile farther. High clearance is helpful. At the T-junction, go right, and continue for 0.2 miles a small parking and the trailhead on the left.

Climbing Season



Weather station 5.5 miles from here

Questa Dome has amazing bouldering. The book(Taos Rock by Jay Foley) describes the earlier developed lower blocks. Since then several people including myself have been scrubbing, projecting, and occasionally sending beautiful hard problems. Steep, featured, bullet rock best describes the lines we have been working on. I added a few photos to show how good some of the lines are, but there are many many more. Lots of projects in the double digits need to be sent. Send me a message if you want a tour, otherwise have fun exploring this beautiful area.

A simple topo would be nice. The stuff around the cragging is obvious, but otherwise a topo to just get you to the rocks can be very helpful.
