This is the "Main Area" of Gilman containing more than 1/3 of the routes. The cliffs here face SW, and so receive morning shade. This area hosts the longest routes and the best rock at Gilman, and is also home to the hardest routes in the canyon.

Getting There 

About 100 yards after driving through the second tunnel, park at a small turnout on the left (below the route Out of the Shadows). Cross the road and descend into the shrubbery. Hop rocks across the river. This can usually be done easily, with large packs, without getting wet.

Cyber Crime 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  New Mexico : Jemez Valley Area : ... : Left Arrow
Perhaps the best line on the wall, Cyber Crime offers a long pitch of excellent rock and movement. Begin as for Entrapment with some tricky moves up the narrow rib. Move onto the sheer slab, and briefly join Trads into Rads. Bust out right for more tenuous face climbing to a distinct crux at a small roof. Surmount the roof with good balance and continue more easily to the chains....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Mexico
