We want to protect access to our climbing areas, while improving and preserving them for the future.

 Rebuilding the Rad Wall landing at El Rito

Rebuilding the Rad Wall landing at El Rito

NM CRAG and the Access Fund organized a crag improvement project at El Rito on March 4, 2017.

Where We Are Headed

 Increasing access to the best bouldering in New Mexico

Increasing access to the best bouldering in New Mexico

With the publication of the New Mexico Bouldering guidebook, our state is gaining recognition for its world class bouldering in Roy and the incredible quartzite of the Ortegas. We want to make sure these resources stay open and would like to gain more access to public lands where abutting private property is an issue...

We want to know what is important to you.
Please take our brief survey and give us some feedback.

 NM CRAG funds go to making our areas better through crag improvements and working with climbers and agencies. 
We want to do more and appreciate all your help.
