Description Suggest change

A prominent 200 foot formation just off State Highway 4 north of Jemez Springs. Honestly not the best quality rock but well worth climbing for the iconic value. Be prepared for lots of (non-climber) spectators as the rock looms over a popular weekend picnic area.

Getting There Suggest change

From Albuquerque, take highway 25 North to Bernalillo and exit at highway 550. Follow 550 to San Ysidro and head North on state road 4 for about 11 miles. If coming from the other direction (Los Alamos) Battleship Rock is about 25 miles past Las Conchas. You can avoid paying the $5 parking fee by parking just off the highway, rather than directly at the picnic grounds.
