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health emergency declared in Executive Order 2020-004 and any extensions of that emergency declaration or until it is rescinded.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.
The first wall you'll reach is the Winter Wall. Climbs here range from 5.8 to 5.12.
Follow the trail along the base and descend a short, easy down-climb to reach the Crow Feather Wall. Climbs here range from 5.8 to 5.12.
To reach the Yellow Wall, follow a trail across the scree at the bottom of the down-climb.
To reach the Vacation Wall, continue up the switchbacks along the Crow Feather Wall to the saddle. Follow cairns west to a rock point where you'll see the Vacation Wall.
Riverbend Hot Springs has hot mineral tub soaks on the river. You have the option for both public or private tubs and a hot shower after a wonderful winter day of climbing.
Blackstone Hotsprings is a luxury lodging option with some interesting themed rooms with in-room hot spring tubs.
Other must-do stops are Passion Pie Cafe, which has amazing coffee and baked goods or breakfast before you head to crag. For a more traditional breakfast check out the Old Brick Cafe or Carmen's ( not open Sunday). Both are a good value. The T or C brewery is very cool with live music, lots of good beer, and an amazing food truck in the back alley. For a good value, the A & B Drive In is fairly fast and gives you a good local experience.
