Detailed Product Description
Albuquerque, 1983, 2nd edition. 234 pp, b/w photos, folded map inside front cover. Used paperback. Near Fine.

The Sandia Mountains are part of a localized geologic uplift South of the Rocky Mountains in New Mexico. Towering to the east of Albuquerque New Mexico the Sandias offer both Hikers and climbers a vast array of backcountry experience. The Sandias rise from 6000 ft to an impressive 10,678 feet above sea level. With Four thousand feet of elevation gain approaching in the Sandias can turn into an epic. Sandia means watermelon which is captured when the western sunset illuminate a pink hue in the evening light.

The Sandias encompass four climatic zones. A Hiker or climber can experience all ranges of temperature and weather conditions while traveling in the Sandias. Be Prepared.

Climbing in the Sandias can be very rewarding with many classic traditional climbs to choose from. Traditional climbing in the Sandias requires a solid and experienced background as route finding can be difficult and the rock tends to be loose in places. If you are up for a truly awesome foray into Yosemite like rock in New Mexico, check it out. As with all Alpine related ventures, get an early start, carry plenty of water and have a sound plan. Routes in the Sandias are accessible from the rim as well as the base. While you are here do not forget to ride the tram.
