Itai Axelrad


While sandstone blocks are not my top choice, we had heard of Roy for quite some time and wanted to check it. We made a quick and socially distant trip in the van and enjoyed the bumpy dirt roads, barbed wire fences and sandy climbing.

The first day we made our way down into the canyon to the bear toss boulder (the problem on the guidebook cover).

Staring down the next crimp on XYZ

I made quick work of the crumbly and seldomly done or attempted XYZ, V13. The next day we enjoyed some mileage climbing in the jumbles. All in all, not the highest quality rock but a fun trip nonetheless. It sure is beautiful in New Mexico!
