Description

The climbing area consists of several smaller crags both uphill and downhill of Luna Park, northeast of Monticello, NM, off Forest Service road #225 within the Cibola National Forest.

The volcanic rock can be super (darker red) to rubbish (lighter buff).

Getting There

Forest Service Road #225 can be accessed via Forest Service Road #139 from the south (Monticello, NM) or from the north (off I-25 west frontage road, ca. 5 miles south of exit 100 Red Rock).

There is another northern approach. Exit 115 (the funky truck stop), go east and follow road #1 for about 11 miles (crosses over I-25 going west), continue south and then go west on Forest Service Road #225. Follow this longer and better road to Luna Park campground.
