Every year for the past seven years, I have climbed a mountain on my birthday. This year I made it up Tetilla Peak, just south of Santa Fe, not once but twice!
I’ve been looking at Tetilla for years; it spikes above the long line of the La Bajada Mesa, northwest of where I winter in Cerrillos. I’ve always meant to climb it, but somehow it got left for last among the high points on my horizons (after Grand Central, Placer Peak, Sandia, Cabezon & Santa Fe Baldy).
No trails climb Tetilla, but a rutted former section of Route 66 will get you most of the way there. I turn off too soon and put the Rover to work down a pointy rocky excuse of a side road, hoping I’m not asking…
