A nice panel of steep rock in the middle sector of The Subdivisions. Unfortunately one must climb a forgettable bit of licheny slab to access the good climbing above. Still worth it though for the fun climbing above.

Getting There 

Follow the approach for The Subdivisons. Look for the obvious dark streak of Octogenarian Love Nest above a green/black lichen-covered slab. This is the Roost area.

Climbing Season

For the Las Conchas area.

Climb the shared start with Superb Owl for five or so bolts but stay right and aim for the black corner above. A quirky move gets you established in the corner. Then flutter up totally sweet pockets and jugs up the corner to the anchor. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
