Getting weather forecast...
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.
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.
