Another seldom-visited streambed welded tuff area in the upper Pueblo Canyon drainage, with short cliffs most suitable for bouldering, sometimes done as dry-tool routes.

I believe this is generally the same area mentioned in "Jemez Rock" as West Pueblo Canyon (aka Shithole Gulch), and at one time had 2 or 3 mediocre sport climbs, but those routes were destroyed by road construction in the early 2000s.

(I haven't climbed here, but added the area at the request of a local climber who noticed some of the routes were posted in the wrong area page and referred to this area as "North Road East". If anyone wants to inherit this page and improve it, you're welcome to it.)

Getting There 

Park as for North Rd. West, but walk to the northeast and down the canyon in that direction instead.

Begin on a rightward slanting thin crack/seam via some thin and balancey moves and gain a small finger crack that finishes with easier moves out the top. Walk off right. The crux is at about 10 feet off the deck below the pocket which is home to "The Toad", who appears to be a yearlong resident here. Use care not to stab the little guy if you are dry-tooling this problem. Skip over his home....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Mexico

Hi Jack. I don't think any of the NM area admins have climbed on this boulder. Try contacting Scott Beguin as he did the FAs on this boulder (and many others in the canyons around Los Alamos.)
