This is a vast tuff crag with lots of potential for route development and lots of fun bouldering. The rock is fairly soft here so use 1/2" x 4" bolts at a minimum. Most of the routes are pretty short but tend to offer stiff and entertaining climbing. Its aspect get morning sun and afternoon shade.

Getting There 

Get to Los Alamos. From Central or Trinity take a right on Diamond and head north, pass the high school and continue past a light, then cross the Pueblo bridge turn right into the Pueblo complex and drive around to the backside of the complex at the southside. Park and locate the obvious break in the fence to a gully that travels about 50 feet to the cliff edge. This should put you at the top of Face The Flag and Wolverine.
