Description 

The Second Tunnel is a somewhat misleading description for the group or routes found on the left (W) side of the road, ~100 yards past (N of) the second tunnel. This area receives sun for most of the morning, and begins getting shade in the mid-afternoon. Routes here are generally not as long, or as good as those across the river. This crag is very near the road, so expect to interact with the tourons.

Getting There 

About 100 yards after passing thru the second tunnel, park at a good turnout on the left side of the road. When parking, consider the possibility of rock fall. This crag is one of only two at Gilman that does not require a creek crossing.

This unfortunate chunk of stone leaves a lot to be desired. Mercifully short, this route climbs marginal rock that is generally covered in dirt and spider webs. However, if you like a challenge and are desparate to climb something on the left side of the road, this is probably better than going to a staff meeting.Scramble over some pretty loose talus, then a delicate step right to a sloping ledge at the base of the imposing steep left leaning bolted dihedral. A long reach gets you started. Th...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
