Description 

This is a collection of small rocks in the area between Bihedral & Inca Stone on the N side of the canyon. There has been some development here, in particular on Hillbilly 1. While this area is not a destination, it can be fun for a quick visit when time is limited. There is a bit of poison ivy in the gully for the sensitive.

Getting There 

Upstream from the Riviera, park in the pullout on the right (N side), just where the road widens to include a passing lane. The Inca Stone (aka Truth or Consequences) is just up the road and also on the right. Walk up the road a few yards, and find a poor trail that follows a steep drainage up the hill. There is a fair amount of poison ivy in the gully, especially on the R side. Approach takes about 10 minutes.

This is the 3rd climb from the left on this cliff. It is deceptive. Move thuggishly past a bolt to a ledge, then step up to the confounding crux. This goes two ways, straight up or surf left (harder & reachier), but both are way reachy. Above, easier but absorbing climbing takes you to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Note: The poorly-named Hillbilly Crags 2&3 are nowhere near Crag 1, so don't be under the impression that you can easily hike from #1 to the others.
