I've walked along a bit of the cliffs there a couple times and felt it looked a bit too soft and chossy for my tastes. But that's not to say it shouldn't be climbed or explored if you're feeling adventurous! Jan 3, 2017

Hey everyone, not a local, just passing through climbing at a few crags. Just passed through the town of Coyote, NM. Not sure if development is already occurring or if it's already been determined a pile of Choss, but there's either 10 lifetimes worth of bouldering around Coyote, or a days worth of realizing it's all shit!
