Mud Mountain Rock Climbing
Beautiful winter limestone crag overlooking the city of Truth or Consequences. All of the sport climbs here are well-bolted, with user-friendly anchors, and have plaques with names and grades below the route.
11/29/22 - when camping, please bring your own firewood. There is no firewood in this desert environment. Please don't tear down ocotillo for firewood, they may look dead but are just dormant.
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.
