DescriptionA selection of climbs can be found in Los Alamos Canyon, just south of the town of Los Alamos.
The Hospital Crag, is a sunny little crag located downhill just south of the medical center, and hosts a handful of sport climbs. An online guide is found here: lamountaineers.org/pdf/Hosp…
Approximately 20 short sport climbs on rhyolite exist upcanyon accessed by hiking up the road to the site of the former Los Alamos Reservoir. Some of these climbs are missing their hangers, but some have them.
The south side of the canyon hosts the most obvious/accessible ice climb in the area.
Getting ThereFrom the town of Los Alamos, head toward the bridge to LANL property. Just before the bridge, take a right on West Rd. to drop into the Canyon; go past the ice rink, before the road goes up the south side of the canyon is the turn-off to the reservoir (gated). The Hospital Crag is more readily accessed by parking behind the medical center and hiking down.
