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.

From here, a 6-move boulder problem leads past the first bolt (to the obvious horizontal break). I would guess this BP is around the V9-V10 range (although I've never boulde...[more] Browse More Classics in NM
