Description 

With routes from 5.6 to 5.11-, this area is great for the beginner to moderate climber. The setting and the approach are hard to beat. Beautiful grassy meadows against the rock make this a great area to climb and hang out just 100 feet from your car door.

Please note that this area is on private property and we are fortunate that the landowner has allowed the public to climb on it. Please be respectful of this area.

Getting There 

It's fairly difficult to miss this area. Follow the directions to Las Conchas. Look across the meadow and you will see the cliff. If there on a weekend you will probably see climbers here as well. It's also right near a popular hiking area near a creek, so there are typically a lot of cars at this pull out.

I spoke with a long time LA climber about this area yesterday. He said that he was pretty sure many of the routes on this wall (Pie in Your Eye, Bovine Inspiration, Cud For Lulu) had been climbed before they were bolted in the 90s, and the names now applied to these sport climbs are carried over from when these routes did not have bolts and may have followed different lines. You can see how the 'RC: NM' book and 'Jemez Rock' do not agree about this cliff. Not that it's a big deal or anything, because either guidebook or the photo topo here has approximately the right ratings for each bolted climb. Maybe someone who was around back when these lines were bolted will clarify.

Cattle Call Wall is the most popular and crowded cliff in New Mexico now, as far as I can tell..

I bolted numbers 5 and 6 in the late 90's for A girl friend. I was living and working in l.a. at the time.

I led Roadside in 1989, so I got you beat by a few years. Camster.

If you ever see CABQ's Extreme Recreation camp (they rappel here-or at least used to)stay far away from them. Most of the leaders are undertrained, and as a result they are a mess of bad anchors and triaxially loaded biners.

I went through all the climbs (not bouldering) at Cattle Call Wall and uploaded photos with topo overlaid on them. Hopefully these photos clarify where the climbs are. The first time I climbed here, it was very difficult to tell which climbs we were on, so I hope other climbers find some value in the new beta photos I uploaded. This is a GREAT area, especially for larger climbing groups and families. Lots of open area for kiddos and dogs, and there is an awesome hike following the stream that leads to more fun climbs.
