An enjoyable basalt, mostly sport climbing crag that also offers some nice gear-protected crack climbs, the Overlook is generally regarded as the finest crag at White Rock.
From NM4, turn south on Rover Blvd. Turn left on the first street on your left, Meadow Lane. Stay on Meadow Lane for .8 mile or so and turn left at the well-signed Overlook Park. This park is loaded with soccer and baseball fields. Park at very end of the road at the round-about at the scenic Overlook view point. Follow the spiny, exposed ridge trail NE left the Overlook view point and descend to the next shelf. You'll be on top of the climbing cliff. A good climber's trail heads south (right) and down to the base of the southeast cliff on your left. The first bolted climb you'll find is Bosker Boozeroo.

Double Vision / Ream Dream 5.11c NM : Los Alamos & White Rock : ... : South/East side
Straight up the steep, pocketed face right of No Exit and left of Cholla Wall. Tricky lower section to high first bolt and then it doesn't let up. Route doesn't see a lot of traffic so the holds aren't as obvious as they are on neighboring climbs and sometimes are a bit dirty. Staying on the face is 5.11c. Reportedly, using the arete on the right makes it 5.10d-ish although right at the finish there's an obvious hold on the arete that I consider on route for 5.11c. ...[more] Browse More Classics in NM
