A low-density, high-quality bouldering spot. More slopers than the usual Box fare.
North-facing and very exposed to wind and weather.
A high-clearance vehicle is helpful but careful driving will get a normal car up there.
Just before reaching the Major Wall parking, there is a road veering West (right) from the main road, going up the hill. Follow this road through a gate and then turn North at the interesection. Follow the road around the North side of the hill. Turn right off the road just under the mine and park near the end of the mine before the road fades away.
Hike West-ish to the North side of the obvious hill. The boulders are just over the shoulder. See the bouldering map on the main Socorro page.
Weather station 6.4 miles from here

Since the mine has blocked access to the Alf Rig trail, this is the map showing the new trail that intersects the old trail past the mine. The trail is marked with cairns, and the split from the scary wall trail is well defined and posted.
