Nice views!  Sucess!

Summited via South Rincon Ridge from Juan Tabo Peak. Great little climb. Took me 3 1/2 hours car to car.

Quite Unassuming  Sucess!

I traversed the whole Rincon ridge and this is at the corner of the ridge where it turns from West to South.

I found the fastest way to get to Rincon was staying near the ridge edge. The trees were heavy under 8300 to the North, but on the ridge there were game trails that made the traverse to Rincon pretty quick. I'd suggest that route.

A pretty normal peak. Not very prominent compared to 8300, but you might as well traverse it on your way across the ridge. Rincon Peak does have a nice view of the Freeway, Rio Rancho, and a good chunk of Albuquerque...as well as the Sandias to the East.

Very difficult and long but worth it.

Route Climbed: Piedra Lisa Trail (South Trailhead) Date Climbed: August 7, 2005  Sucess!

It is a tricky peak to get to since it is so far away from the trail and overrun with cacti.
