Does anyone know how the El Rito climbing area is fairing in the Bonita fire? I cannot really tell how close it is to El Rito.

Does anyone know if the Los Canchas climbing area is still intact so far in the current Cajete fire? I think area 37 (?) Burnt.

I drove past the Vallecitos valley a few days ago, a lot of smoke from Bonito, but it was not going in the direction of El Rito. I think it would be fine there. Las Conchas has been spared by the Cajete fire (stopped about a mile west),  Area 37 too (that burned in the 2011 fire). Very disappointing to hear that the Cajete fire was started by an abandoned campfire.

Thank you. I may take a look at El Rito soon.
