Access Issue: Permit Required For Climbing in El Malpais National Monument Details


(1) Climb the crack to a dead tree. From here, the crack widens and steepens, ending in an alcove. (2) Move up out of the alcove and continue up the crack to the base of a thick flake. Traverse right and climb a thin finger crack (5.8) to a belay on top of a block.


At the back of the Natural Arch Canyon is a prominent low-angle right-facing dihedral.


Two or three super-large cams and a sling. On the first ascent, a tied-off helmet was the only pro on the first pitch. Big Bros would be nice.
