DescriptionThis mostly shaded and highly secluded bouldering crag features a handful of lowball routes on a limestone overhang. The crag is relatively small but worthwhile area to explore and home to one of new mexico's only V14's
Access road(NM 165) may be closed during winter months Details
Getting ThereFrom Albuquerque take I-25 Northbound to exit 242 and turn left (eastbound) on NM 165 towards Placitas. Follow the highway until it goes from paved to dirt. From the paved/dirt road transition, the parking for the crag will be located 1.8 miles up the road. At the 1.7 mile mark you will pass a sign that reads "Road Narrows" that has route setting tape on it and a picture of a pooping worm on the back.
Pull to the side of the road and park right above the culvert. Hike up the wash located to the right side of the road following the climbers trail for roughly 50 yards. After passing a pile of medium boulders at the bottom of the wash, veer right on the trail and hike uphill to the crag.
