- Not sure where this gear-practice location really belongs on Mountain Project, if at all. There will probably never be any routes or bouldering problems listed. That is, it falls quite a bit short of what most think of as a crag.
- Like other places in the open spaces adjacent to Albuquerque, those little summer-time flying bugs can be very pesky unless it is windy.
This is a great place for gear-anchor practice: numerous cracks 1/8 inch to 6 inch at ground level or accessible via easy scrambling, all within a short hike from the city. An aspiring leader could be kept busy making placements and building anchors for hours without repeat. There is enough terrain to keep a handful of folks concurrently practicing the craft.
Some of the rock is pretty fractured, some bomber, and some inbetween ... plenty of opportunities to point out the issues to a beginning leader. It faces west for nice summer AM shade and winter sun in the PM.
