Description

Sunny rock with a shaded half hour hike for six problems from 5.9 to V6. Secluded. About 20 ft tall.

Getting There

From intersection of NM 518 and US 68 in Ranchos de Taos (southern end of Taos) turn east onto 518 drive 4.3 miles to a paved pullout on the south side of highway. Start the hike at the west end of pullout. Hike southwest until the beaver ponds become a stream again. Cross the steam and hike up main drainage due south. You will encounter a 25 ft rock wall @ 15 min. That is 5.3 straight up or hike around. Keep going until the drainage gets steep again and turns into a y about 20min. Go west or right up the steep hillside with slabs of rock laying on it. Watch out for all the cactus on this hillside.
