On July 1, 2020, the New Mexico state governor issued an executive order (cv.nmhealth.org/wp-content/…) requiring all visitors from out of state to self-isolate or self-quarantine for a period of at least 14 days from the date of their entry into the State of New Mexico or for the duration of their presence in the State, whichever is shorter. The terms "self-isolate" or "self-quarantine" refer the voluntary physical separation of a person or group of people in a residence or other place of lodging. Any person who is self-isolating or self-quarantining may only leave a residence or place of lodging to receive medical care and should not allow others into the residence or place of lodging except for those providing medical care, emergency response, or other individuals designated by the New Mexico Department of Health.
The executive order also closes all New Mexico State Parks to non-NM residents.
This Executive Order shall take effect on July 1, 2020 and shall remain in effect through the duration of the public health emergency declared in Executive Order 2020-004 and any extensions of that emergency declaration or until it is rescinded.
Additionally, NM state guidance requires all persons to wear a mask anytime they are out in public, including outdoor recreation areas.
There is a wide range of problems that can be found here established by old school crushers. Shorter people will often find problem grades to be sandbagged. The difficultly derives from the problems having limited feet options and spacing between holds is often clean and void of any features. However, these problems are very aesthetic due to these reasons. The projects that are left here for sure approach v10 and beyond.
***Access Issue*** Vandalism has been committed to the largest boulders by the main parking (ie the Pizza Boulders themselves). Rock art has been stated to be underneath the northern overhang of the largest Pizza Boulder, to the left of a large hueco. DO NOT try and climb the very obvious line that exits from this hueco as this traverses right over the rock art. There has also been an abundance of trash left in the area the boulders are in. Please exhibit leave no trace to minimize impact. People at the BLM will be notified so a clean up can be made to these boulders to maintain access.
- Trails have become overgrown, try and minimize impact as much as possible till they are reestablished. There are two main offshoot trails to the north of the vandalized rocks at the end parking lot next main Pizza Boulders. Also it is the desert so be aware of snakes, it would be a long painful ride back to Las Cruces. Cell phones have the possibility of not working in this area. Some of the larger boulders have bolts on them but they can be decades old, beware.
There are many more climbs in this area than those stated, more effort will be put into this page in the future. Go adventure and experience an area that allows you to escape civilization in a breathtaking setting for sunsets.
- The efforts on this page are possible thanks to the Lost Causes guide created by Charlie Cundiff.
