Spent a day and a half with Jay as our guide. First half day was more review and prep for the next days multi-pitch climb. Jay also pointed out some great warm up spots. The multi-pitch was amazing. Can't wait to go again!

The best time to climb in Taos is April thru November. We can climb in Taos year round if the temps are above 40 degrees. There are some great solar crags.
