Description 

The Second Tunnel is a somewhat misleading description for the group or routes found on the left (W) side of the road, ~100 yards past (N of) the second tunnel. This area receives sun for most of the morning, and begins getting shade in the mid-afternoon. Routes here are generally not as long, or as good as those across the river. This crag is very near the road, so expect to interact with the tourons.


Getting There 

About 100 yards after passing thru the second tunnel, park at a good turnout on the left side of the road. When parking, consider the possibility of rock fall. This crag is one of only two at Gilman that does not require a creek crossing.

Out of the Shadows 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  NM : Jemez Valley Area : ... : Second Tunnel
This worthwhile route is a good option on a hot afternoon or chilly morning. Certainly one of the best routes on the left side, this route can be a bit dirty at times, despite good-quality rock. Begin by scrambling up to the belay stance. Its possible to climb a mini-pitch up to a good ledge with a belay bolt for minimal rope drag, but its perfectly do-able (and surely less of a hassle) to belay from the 2nd class ledges below. Snake up the vertical wall, occasionally reaching right around t...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
