Approach to Domingo Baca

From Ellena Gallegos open area, park you vehicle in the east most lot and follow the natural trail north-east. You cross into the wilderness area at the base of the Domingo Baca canyon. Head up the trail until you see formations on the north (left side of canyon). If you walked all the way to the ruins of cabin, you are too far (return about 50 meters down the trail). There is a faint climber's trail leading up north towards the formations. Approach time 30-40 minutes.

Climbs in Domingo Baca

There is a collection of short trad and mixed routes, they are all easy to moderate routes. The rock is good quality, and most of the walls are facing south - so great for winter climbing. And for me the biggest advantage is, I can hike there from my house. I live only 1 mile away from the parking lot.
