Description [Suggest Change]
Quality hard basalt crack climbs a few feet above a remote section of the Rio Grande. Expect solitude, eagles and osprey, and a glorious setting. The wall is mostly east by southeast facing. Summer can be too hot in the direct sun, but ideal on mornings and evenings. Fall is the best time to climb here. See "Taos Rock" for location and route descriptions. There is a wade-in sand bottom swimming hole right in front of the crag.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Approach from car is about 30-45 minutes (depending on water level). Save something for the hike back out.
