Description

Facing due south, sheltered from the wind and way up above the river, the Easy Bake Alcove gets its name from the Easy-Bake Oven as the area tends to bake even on the coldest winter days. The area is definitely best as a winter crag but fall and spring are reasonable especially if the day is cloudy. Summer evenings are also quite nice.

You'll likely be climbing in t-shirts on sunny, calm winter days even if the temperature at the parking area is well below freezing.

Getting There

Hike along the East Fork of the Jemez River from the main Las Conchas parking lot for about 15 minutes (roughly a mile). You'll cross the river three times on good bridges. After the third crossing, keep hiking past The Sponge. Just beyond The Hidden Tower but before the beautiful Leaning Tower is a big corner/alcove up above the river. This is the Easy Bake Alcove.

The crag is a good addition to the area. Thanks for the FAs! Apr 14, 2014
Several routes at this crag were covered in chalk marks when we were there yesterday. If whoever did that reads this, please try to refrain from making large tick marks on routes, and if you must make them, please clean them off when you're done. They're unsightly, and greatly detract from peoples' onsight experiences. Thank you! Mar 27, 2016
