Rock Climbing in Gallup

The Mentmore Climbing Area, just west of Downtown Gallup, features high quality, steep, single pitch sandstone climbs. Nearly all of the climbs have top rope access, or they can be climbed as either sport or traditional routes.

To get there take I-40 to the western exit (Exit 16) and head west on Route 66 for about 1/4 mile and turn right (north) on to County Road One. After just over 1/2 mile, turn left after crossing a bridge and head west for about a mile. Continue straight into the parking area rather than staying on the paved road (which turns right).

The climbing area is comprised of the Original Area to the north, which is accessed by heading west out of the parking area until you turn north toward the cliffs; and, the New Area which is south of the parking lot.

There are around 40 routes on the Original Area, ranging from 5.3 to 5.12; and, 30 or so in the New Area, ranging from 5.6 to 5.11. More information, photos and routes can be found at www.mountainproject.com/v/gallup-area/106298098.
