A compact cragging area with cracks of all sizes and variety. The routes are on the short side, 70 feet or less, with a good variety making for a nice introduction to Capulin climbing. Despite the name, the area has one of the shorter approaches in Capulin but that is not to say it's an easy approach...one must still descend all the way down to the canyon and still do the energy-sapping hike out at the end of the day.
To reach The Hinterlands, approach via option 2 (or option 1) as shown on the approach beta photo. Once in the bottom of the canyon, go downstream (east) for about a 100 yards until you're just below the Hinterlands area. Head left out of the drainage more or less straight up to the wall. From the car, the approach will take about 20 to 30 minutes.

A really cool, solid jamming route to a bouldery finish at the double "tuning fork" cracks. Scramble up the gully to get on top of the block to the left. Reach across to place a #4 camalot and pull over to the crack and a tiny horizontal edge. Big hands to steep hand jamming goes up to the fork. Take the left fork, place high gear and make moves up both cracks to some good holds and a mantle up to the anchor. ...[more] Browse More Classics in NM
