That said, Las Conchas is a year-round climbing destination. The wind-sheltered, south-facing walls of Easy Bake Alcove, Hidden Tower, Retirement Wall and The Subdivisions are ideal in the heart of winter given a sunny, calm day.
The obvious cliff seen through the meadow on the north side of the road is Cattle Call Wall Area. Most of the other cliffs are downstream, following a trail that begins on the west side of the creek.
*'Jemez Rock' is the most complete guide to the area
*'Rock Climbing: New Mexico also covers the area
*Samet & Jett's out-of-print Sport Climbing New Mexico guide can be found in pdf format on the LA Mountaineers site. It's older, so some newer climbs are missing.
*Topos for Cattle Call Wall and Gateway Rock (the most popular cliffs closest to the parking) are posted on the LA Mountaineers website here
