Description

See Mick Schein's Sandia Rock guide for a complete description.

A hidden area with clean steep faces. These areas consist of a few easier trad climbs along with some harder mixed climbs. Consists of two different levels, Science Friction being the upper wall and Windward wall being the lower wall.

Getting There

Approach from the crest from the crest spur trail to the junction with the La Luz. At the junction head west (towards Albuquerque) on a primitive climber trail head up to the ridge above Echo Canyon.

Follow the ridge first south then west until you reach the cliffband. You will pass several don't disturb boundary marker signs on the way. Locate a pair of rap anchors (tough to spot) and do a 150' rappel down A Face Odyssey to the base of Science Friction Wall. There is a huge bolt halfway down which you might be able to stop and do a second rappel if needed.
