Description

A nice granite crag with a car bumper belay. Roadside Distraction crag faces south and is shady and cold from December to early February, but is sunny the rest of the year.

Getting There

Roadside Distraction is located about three miles East of Questa on HW 38 (which is the road to Red River) on the north side of the road. Look for the large pullout on the left side of the road as you enter the canyon.

Navigate to 36.701964, -105.561592 and you'll drive right to the crag.

Climbed here yesterday. Does anyone know what the bolted route just right of Roadside Distraction is? All hangers are spray painted black, and the climb seemed like a good 5.11. Apr 2, 2012
