This crag features about 20 routes, mostly 5.12s and two 5.13s. There are a few trad lines here that are in the 5.11 range, but mostly this is a hardman's area. Unlike the Mesa, there is no shade at this crag once the sun hits, so get there early or in the dead of winter.
This crag is up the road about half a mile from Cochiti Mesa. It can be a bit hard to find. Continue past the Mesa parking. After a few hundred yards an obvious view point appears on the left (Vista Point Overlook). Stop and enjoy the view, then get back in your car and continue .5 miles up the road. Park near a large dead tree, and scramble down the left side of the road to the cliff. It will probably take a couple of tries to find this place, but it's only about 2 minutes from the road.
