A few rhyolite crags are located off the Mitchell Trail in the hills immediately northwest of Los Alamos. It is definitely a quick getaway for Los Alamos locals, and provides a good all around workout to climb here.
Drive up the Main Hill road and into Los Alamos. The main road then turns into Trinity Drive. Take a right turn on to Diamond; pass through the next three stoplights and head down the hill past the Conoco station towards the golfcourse. Turn left on 36th St. which is the second street on your left after you pass through the third stoplight at the Diamond and Alabama intersection. Continue all the way up 36th until you reach Arizona Ave. Take a left on Arizona and continue all the way to 45th and Arizona intersection where the Mitchell trailhead parking is to your right. There is also a firetruck playground on your left.
