Hillbilly Rocks Rock Climbing
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.
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.
Weather station 4.6 miles from here

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.
