Mike R. finishing up a great day at Area 37 with B...
A nice little crag about a mile east of the Las Conchas
climbing area. This small crag has many good routes on the same type of rock as Las Conchas. Though the crag is small, there is a nice range in levels from 5.6 to 5.12b/c.
Follow the directions to the [ climbing area, then drive about a mile east of Las Conchas
. Pull out on the north side of the road at mile marker 37. The wall will be obvious but is partially obscured by trees.
Follow a faint trail through the grass to a barbed wire fence. Jump across it and hike up the hill to the crag. Approach time is about one minute. It's a flip-flops kind of approach.

: Jemez Valley Area
: Area 37
Three days of bolting, hammering, prying, scraping and brushing have yielded a fairly high-quality route between "Cherry Pickin'" and "Branching Out". The route starts on the typical Jemez grit and launches into cleaner and steeper dark rock on a variety of holds (with many gastons). A good rest precedes an interesting last crux (heel hook?)....[more] Browse More Classics in NM
Standing near the base of Cyclic Loader.

A big chunk of rock came off of "Cyclic Loader" yesterday while two climbers were on it. It's safe to say the rock at Area 37 isn't of the highest quality and is more prone to breaking when it's been wet (like it has been recently.) Use caution at this area after it's been raining.
