Description

Limestone bouldering cave near Las Vegas. Basically a grafitti and broken glass covered chossy limestone cave that was transformed into a powerful gymnastic bouldering spot. Maybe not so pretty to look at, but amazing problems and movement. Problems range from v3 to hard v13. Please don't visit if you are offended by reinforced or altered rock, this won't be the place for you. If you just want to climb hard and powerful problems, then you are in luck. A dead body was found here also.

Not for the squeamish.

Getting There

A few miles outside Las Vegas, NM.

Drive on NM 65 (aka Hot Springs Rd.) toward Montezuma, pass the United World College and the hot springs. Start going up the hill on NM 65 (aka FR 263). At this point you are headed northwest of the springs. Drive for about 8-10 minutes once you pass the hot springs. 0.3 miles past mile marker 8, look for a decent paved pull-out on the right. There may or may not be two trees that have white crosses painted on them. You can see the wall from the parking. Park off the road and walk up the trail.

Thanks for the info on route names. We've been bouldering here for a number of years, but never new the names. Jan 31, 2010
