The Subdivisions Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Overview of the Subdivisions
Further downstream beyond the Leaning Tower
and Retirement Wall
areas, The Subdivisions is an area of numerous walls subdivided by gullies or breaks in the rock in an area with a big meadow.
Hike along the East Fork of the Jemez River from the main Las Conchas parking lot for about 20 minutes (a bit over a mile). You'll cross the river three times on good bridges. After the third crossing, keep hiking past The Sponge
and past the beautiful Leaning Tower
and just beyond Retirement Wall
to a large meadow area.

I think it makes sense to have the separate areas here as the walls themselves are broken up by natural breaks. See this photo for the overview.

Admittedly it is a bit difficult to orientate oneself because many routes on some of the walls are not posted here.
