Maybe not really part of the foothills but the climbing is quite similar and it is close. Typicaly more secluded, fewer people bouldering and hiking. Rock quality is standard for the foothills, large grain granite can be great or kitty litter. There are several different areas here.
From ABQ drive east on I-40 to the Carnuel exit, just after the Tramway exit. Turn left at the stop sign onto old rt 66. After about a mile you will see a sign on the left for the Monticello Estates, turn left then imediately right. The road curves to the left uphill, take your first paved left, Siempre Verde, which will curve back right and continue up the hill. As the road curves right again turn left (this is pretty much as high as the road gets) onto a dirt road, Tres Pistolas Tr, stay right at the fork and the road deadends at the parking.

Climb straight up to the sloper and bail right into the scoop for the V5 or stay on the prow a few more moves for the V6. The V6 exit foot is the sloper that you grab off the crimps. ...[more] Browse More Classics in NM
