South Mountain (New Mexico) Climbing Notes

DB from UNITED STATES writes:

Tough hike, no trails. Hard to find access without going through private land. There is a BLM area on the north side on 344 you can use as a starting point. Park close to the road as the area is a popular shooting range which can have obvious dangers if someone doesn't know you are down range. Much prettier and less dangerous hikes out there, I would recommend avoiding this one.
