Description

Boot Hill is a local, moderate quality, limestone crag above Placitas in Las Huertas Canyon (below Palomas and above Sandia Man Cave). It is uphill from the road and secluded. The area has seen little climbing traffic, be aware of some loose material on the routes. A clip stick is useful.

Getting There

Drive up SR 165 to mile marker 12 (now missing off post) and park in an informal lot next to the road. Cross the creek and walk uphill from the parking lot , trending a bit right to the ridge. Follow game trails, and a few cairns, in a long upward and right traverse. When one approaches the left side of the cliff, walk up the steep hill to the base of the rock.

The area is relatively new and has seen low climber traffic. Smaller chips have become loose over the past year such that helmets are good for the belayer. Also, several climbs require alpine draws to reduce rope drag. Bring more than short sport draws. Sep 5, 2017
A dog leash was found at the bottom of the leftmost routes on 5/20. Message me and I can arrange the return of the item. May 26, 2018
