DescriptionLas Hermanas, or The Sisters, is a collection of 3 large boulders about 40 feet tall. From South to North (or bottom to top) they are known as Angela, Lucia, and Arniel. This area has about 15 routes from 5.8 to 5.12. There are also many opportunities for bouldering.
Climbing consists of typical Socorro climbing involving technical moves on crimps and the occasional pocket. Climbs vary from slabby to slightly overhanging.
