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


The rock is surprisingly good. There are two routes on the west side (one 5.10 and one 5.8 if I recall), and one on the east (5.7?). Descend off the east side.


This is one of only two areas west of the highway. Located about 6.3 miles from the Sandstone Bluffs Overlook turnoff, the official name of this outcrop is La Vieja (the Old Woman), named for the profile of a woman's face as seen from the southeast.


Standard rack to 3"
