More granite blocks surrounding the area about the base of the Tram. Some of the rock is exceptional and a handful of really nice problems such as Scrapula V6. The majority of the problems are to the east and north of the Tram terminal and pretty dispersed.

Getting There 

At the only stop sign, where Tramway turns from east-west to north-south, head east to the lower terminal for the Sandia Peak Tramway. You can park in the Tram lot for a buck or try your luck parking in the neighborhood to the north, though I believe most of it is posted "no parking" on the streets.

GPS location is the Tram terminal parking lot, but if you are using GPS to get there you probably need help.

Be aware that the boulder is basically split by a property line designated by a small piece of rebar (barely) visible near the bottom left corner of the photo. The left side of the boulder lies on the propert...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
