Description

This is a collection of small rocks in the area between Bihedral & Inca Stone on the N side of the canyon. There has been some development here, in particular on Hillbilly 1. While this area is not a destination, it can be fun for a quick visit when time is limited. There is a bit of poison ivy in the gully for the sensitive.

Getting There

Upstream from the Riviera, park in the pullout on the right (N side), just where the road widens to include a passing lane. The Inca Stone (aka Truth or Consequences) is just up the road and also on the right. Walk up the road a few yards, and find a poor trail that follows a steep drainage up the hill. There is a fair amount of poison ivy in the gully, especially on the R side. Approach takes about 10 minutes.

Note: The poorly-named Hillbilly Crags 2&3 are nowhere near Crag 1, so don't be under the impression that you can easily hike from #1 to the others. Sep 21, 2008
