Unless you have high clearance 4wd, you'll want to park up higher in the canyon where people camp and then hike to the climbs. Nov 21, 2010

This wall is one of the sickest I have seen anywhere in the world. I have been to many world class crags all over the US and the Las Animas Wall will give ANYWHERE a run for its money! I think the only wall I have seen that is more impressive is the Motherlode at the Red. But this is the kind of class were talking about here. Every single route I got on at the Las Animas Wall was super sick and seemed to be better than the previous one I tried. There are loads of 12d to 13b climbs with some great 5.12a's serving as the warmup including Cula De Negra and Mucho Cornhuelos. Unfortunately, any documentation of the routes down here just plain sucks and there have been lots of routes added in between the existing routes. So bring your guns and a bail biner because that 12a your trying to warmup on just might turn out to be 13a.. I recommend getting on whatever looks fun which means your gonna want to do every route...... Mar 25, 2012
The route Mind's Eye should be sorted right of Culo de la Negra and left of Lazy Boy Lover Feb 27, 2016
