Description 

The North End has about seven established sport lines including the crags easiest. A couple of the routes share the same anchors making it a good spot for top-roping. This section tends to be the most exposed to winds though, being adjacent to the gap in the hills.

Getting There 

This is the section of cliff first visible from the approach.

Deer Leg 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  New Mexico : Las Cruces Area Climbing : ... : North End routes
A long, fun route with some tendency toward choss at the very top and in some off-route locations. Works with a 60m rope, but only just, so make sure to close your system. There is a skeleton of an actual deer leg up there, hence the name. (The route went by Bambi's Last Leg for a time but reverted to its original name at the request of the originator.) ...[more]   Browse More Classics in New Mexico

There is a mystery route to the right of deer leg, starts up in an alcove. The route is probably a 5.10a, 9 bolts(?)to a 2 bolt anchor on the prominent prow up above the start of Deer Leg. This route is currently not in any of the guidebooks.
