Area south of Box Canyon. Good winter climbing due to its south facing nature. Several routes among the walls with grades ranging from moderate to advanced. Just as the majority of Socorro, most of the routes are equipped with bolts with some taking pro.
From the Box, continue south on the dirt road for about a mile up the hill. You will eventually get to a point where the road narrows, where will also see an open gate (at least it has been open every time I have been there) and a fence. Park around here. The crags are to your left. See overview map (rough) to learn more of where each wall is.
