Description

Desert area, lower and dryer than Santa Fe. Just off a dirt road, but quiet. Devil's Throne is the large crag on your left about 3/4 mile outside of Cerrillos. Dark Minion is the smaller crag on the right. It's the steepest rock on the right side of the road.

Getting There

From Santa Fe at the I 25 overpass go south on State 14 about 13 miles to the Cerrillos turnoff drive into Cerrillos. Turn right in front of the bar then turn left a block or two later. Devil's Throne is about 3/4 of a mile down the road.

Aaron Miller showed me a couple of lines that he had climbed here maybe 15 yrs ago, on the bigger formation on the S side of Waldo Canyon Rd. (Devils Throne). As I remember, a 10+(?) crack/dihedral that looked like the cleanest and best line at the crag (has anchors, noteworthy as Aaron's first FA in New Mexico) and another one that he said wasn't as good, possibly others too. If you're contemplating climbing in this area, consider asking him for more details, maybe he'll post with the names and such.

Overall, my impression was the area looks kind of chossy (what else did you expect?), but it's fairly tall (90'?) and kind of a cool place. I'd consider stopping if in the area with a trad rack and some extra time. May 4, 2016
