DescriptionThe Legs (also called the Nutcracker) is a smaller formation left of the main Questa Dome, and is the 2nd biggest rock in the area. It is home to a nice popular 3-pitch 5.8 route, with a 5.10 variation. This formation is a good choice for a first visit to this area.
These climbs are described in full in J.Foley's "Taos Rock" guidebook.
2 ropes are required for the standard rappel descent.
There is also potential for find-your-own adventure climbs in the 5.5-5.8 range up the low-angle crack systems right of the Legs, yet left of Questa Dome proper.
