I'm planning on being in Taos over the holiday weekend and was looking for suggestions of the bests crags to climb up to 5.11 sport. Comales canyon looks good, for the sheer amount of options. We will probably be climbing both Saturday and Sunday, and possibly a little bit Friday as well. Do these areas get pretty crowded, also is temperature a huge concern? Is there any good multi pitch sport near taos? Also maybe looking to do an easier multipitch trad at some point. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

El Rito is not far from Taos. It has about 80 Maple Canyon like sport routes, mostly .10 and .11, and it is easy to find shade there. There is also a small, mediocre, but okay 2 pitch trad area nearby. There are some basalt crags very near Taos, such as John's Wall, but those can be a bit warm. the schmuck
