Roy offers many superb boulder problems, sport climbs and even some trad climbs for those willing to venture a bit further than the average Roy climber. Located just next to Canadian River, which created this canyon as it cut through the Dakota sandstone. At first I was pretty reluctant to put anything on the internet, but with the release of the awesome New Mexico Bouldering Guidebook, the internet and forums/articles on this place I thought it was of good use.
Please tread lightly and respectfully. Right now land owners and the forest service are on good terms with climbers and climbing visitors must be on their best behavior when visiting this relatively new climbing destination. Please close all gates behind you, stay on established roads, drive slowly and heed all road closure signs.
Very minimal parking spots (1-2) exist at most of these areas so large groups are not recommended. Make sure to clean up after yourself. This means packing out your used toilet paper (and use Wag Bags please.) Stay on established trails and camp in existing campsites so we can all continue to recreate in this beautiful area.
The best times to climb at Roy are mid-fall to mid-spring, otherwise it will be just be too hot. Many contend going to Joe's or Hueco is a better option, with more established problems and bigger areas, and, although this may be true, Roy holds a small special place in an out-there, wild and special setting.
- Ma Sally's Mercantile - Stocks climbing chalk, tape and copies of the New Mexico Bouldering guidebook.
- La Casita Bunkhouse - Lodging that sleeps 6. Teepees also available!
- The Inn at Roy - Four rooms available via AirBnB.
- Harding County General Store - Locally owned grocery and general store for those forgotten food items.
- There's also a gas station, a New Mexican cafe/diner and an opening-soon bakery/cafe next to Ma Sally's
- Beware, though, Sundays in Roy are dead. Nothing is open (but you can still fill up your gas tank.)
- The Broken Arrow - Locally owned motel with character. Quite nice.
- Springer Super Market - Locally owned grocery store.
- A couple of gas stations.
- Callahan West Brewery - Beer!
