Taos Rock

Rock Climbs and Boulders of Northern NM


Taos Rock, Written by Mountain Skills Guide
Jay Foley

Taos Rock has over 300 days of sunshine a year. Northern New Mexico offers mild winters, cool summers, and unrivaled sunsets and panoramic vistas. Crank steep bolted cobbles amid the pine forests of El Rito. Sample the splitter cracks and bolted basalt of the Rio Grande Corridor.

Multi-pitch trad climbing provides day-long adventure on Questa Dome. Many fine bouldering areas serve as destinations or quick fixes. Tres Piedras, Cimarron, and Comales Canyons, round out the offerings. Free camping, hot springs, and uncrowded cliffs combine with Southwestern charm to make Taos Rock Climbing the ultimate Four Corners climbing destination. Taos Rock, Sharp End Publishing (2005).
