DescriptionHome of the Juan Tabo Waterfall - a rare Sandias ice climb fed by the drainage of Mummy Canyon & Pinnacle Valley.
Juan Tabo Canyon is subject to annual access closures from March 1 to August 15. Details
The USFS-imposed closure applies to UNM Spire, the Prow, the Ramp, and the Shield (but not the Knife Edge). The Needle, and its south and east approaches, are unaffected.
Getting ThereCross Waterfall Canyon about a half mile along the Piedra Lisa trail. Unmaintained track gains 700 feet at the waterfall some 3/4 mile in. The canyon floor lies just outside the area of the annual raptor closure which takes effect March 1 - generally too late in the season to ice climb anyway.
