Estrellita

New Mexico > Albuquerque Area > Sandia Mountains > La Cueva Canyon, Upper

Description

A single pitch slice of QUALITY rock.

Getting There

Find the La Luz trailhead at the South end of the Sandia Crest Parking area. Hike down the Crest Spur Trail to the junction with the La Luz and head on the La Luz. Several switchbacks down the trail you will come upon the first talus slope. Continue down two switchbacks from this point and you will come upon a faintish climbers trail that will head North, around 100 feet, to the base of the crag.
