Further downstream beyond the Leaning Tower and Retirement Wall areas, The Subdivisions is an area of numerous walls subdivided by gullies or breaks in the rock in an area with a big meadow.

Getting There 

Hike along the East Fork of the Jemez River from the main Las Conchas parking lot for about 20 minutes (a bit over a mile). You'll cross the river three times on good bridges. After the third crossing, keep hiking past The Sponge and past the beautiful Leaning Tower and just beyond Retirement Wall to a large meadow area.

Hypnagogic Jerk 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  NM : Jemez Valley Area : ... : Sleeper
The sustained, slightly overhanging nature of this route will keep you wide awake. Sustained moves on generally good holds on steep rock keep you pumped as you aim for not-quite-as-good-as-they-look scoops and dishes on the steep face to a neat little tufa-like pinch. Finish on lower-angle, licheny rock past one more bolt to the anchors. Short and full value. Likely 11+ or so for taller climbers. A bit more difficult for shorties....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM

Can we please put all these routes into one area listed as The Subdivisions? We were out there yesterday, and we had a really hard time finding routes because all of the little sub-areas are described in relation to one another.

I think it makes sense to have the separate areas here as the walls themselves are broken up by natural breaks. See this photo for the overview.

Admittedly it is a bit difficult to orientate oneself because many routes on some of the walls are not posted here.
