The south facing sunny side of La cueva is the first face you notice when driving into the area. It probably will be warm even on the coldest Southern new Mexico day.

A handful of sport routes are located on this side. The broad slabs also make for a good beginners area.

Getting There 

follow the trail from the picnic area.

Getting stung ups the grade to 5.11......[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
