With over 300 days of sunshine a year, Northern New Mexico offers mild winters, cool summers, unrivaled sunsets and panoramic vistas. Crank cobbles at El Rito, sample splitter cracks and bolted basalt in the Rio Grande Corridor, savor multi-pitch trad climbing on Questa Dome, or visit many fine bouldering destinations. Tres Piedras, Cimarron and Comales Canyons, round out the offerings. Free camping, hot springs, and uncrowded cliffs combine with Southwestern charm to make Taos the ultimate Four Corners climbing destination.
