Description [Edit]

A compact cragging area with cracks of all sizes and variety. The routes are on the short side, 70 feet or less, with a good variety making for a nice introduction to Capulin climbing. Despite the name, the area has one of the shorter approaches in Capulin but that is not to say it's an easy approach...one must still descend all the way down to the canyon and still do the energy-sapping hike out at the end of the day.

The Hinterlands are in a south-facing corner and, like nearly all of the Capulin climbing, bakes in the sun. But because it's a corner the routes on the right side of the area are shaded for a bit in the morning and the routes on the left side shaded in the afternoon.

Getting There [Edit]

To reach The Hinterlands, approach as shown on the approach beta photo. Once in the bottom of the canyon, go upstream (west) beyond the Capulet Side Canyon until you're just below the Hinterlands area. Head right out of the drainage more or less straight up to the wall. There's not a clearly-established trail up to the base of the wall but the most common "trail" is up a washed-out drainage. Look for cairns. From the car, the approach will take about 30 minutes.
