Las Ventanas from across the canyon.

Description 

This area "the windows" sits up on the west side of the canyon and faces east, though there is a south and north facing aspect to the actual windows themselves.

The wall is divided into 2 parts. One is left of the windows and is a steep overhanging wall that is about 80 feet high, though it is so steep that some of the routes are quite a bit longer, like 120-150 feet long.

The right hand part is the actual windows and the cave to the right of them which faces north.

Getting There 

Hike down into the canyon. Then head north or up canyon, you will have to cross the river on stones a few times depending on where you drop into the canyon. walk until you are below the arches and you will have seen an obvious brown trail cutting up and left across the slope below. Aim for this trail and follow it up to the arches. The approach takes about 30 minutes from the car.
