Description

The main drainage of Pueblo Canyon is home to some of the longer cracks in Los Alamos on welded tuff. 2 of these routes are described in the Jemez Rock guidebook. If you explore the area you'll find many compelling-looking lines. If only the rock was more consistently of high quality.

Getting There

A number of different approaches can be used to get into Pueblo Canyon, but the shortest way to the high hiker/biker bridge and the longest cracks in Pueblo Canyon is off of Olive St. From just north of the high school on Diamond Drive, go east on Orange, park at the old school building/trailhead on the left side of the road (currently "Family Strengths Network"). Walk (or drive, if the gate is open- driving might not be legit?) down Olive, past the site of an old sewer treatment plant; the bridge with the most climbed route in the canyon below it (a 5.8/5.9 hand crack) is just north of this. Rappel in to the canyon and climb out.

Other trails lead into the upper parts of Pueblo Canyon and side canyons.
