This area is visible to the NW from Cochiti Mesa. It offers a small number of high quality routes with the shortest approach at Cochiti. All routes are approached by rappelling, and only one route has an anchor, so its a good idea to bring an extra rope for rigging tree anchors.
Continue up the road about 1/2 mile from the Mesa parking. The Overlook is obvious on the left, offering beautiful views to the SE. There is a Forest Service gate (apparently always open) spanning the road just immediately after the Overlook. Park on the left.
