Description 

A group of walls with gorgeous cracks for multiple pitches. It is east facing. Approach from Aguirre Springs ranger station. Bring long pants and be prepared for serious bushwacking.


Getting There 

Park at Aguirre Springs ranger station (note you should probably leave $5 on your windshield). From here you will see the wall out in the distance to the west. You should be able to make out the route from here. Hike west and into the main canyon of these rock walls. This will take you right to the base of the Crack Dome. The Diamond is below and north on the east face in relation to Baylor Peak.

Rocky Top 5.9+ 5c 17 VI E1 5a A1  NM : Organ Mountains : ... : Crack Dome
A very steep exciting multi-pitch up solid clean granite, aid is strongly recommended with ladders and hooks, to free the whole route would be downright impressive. This route was super fun for me and it also scared the hell out of me at least once on every pitch. Some of the higher pitches have really nice exposure. Pitch 1: 5.9+ A1, aid up a hand crack up into an obvious dihedral, take the dihedral up to a random ledge. When the rope is too tight make anchor.Pitch 2: 5.8, climb the dihedral....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
