High Point

Three bottles is the only Black Diamond on the route because it has some very large features. All are rollable but they are a bit high-stakes due to exposure and the size of the boulders. This is a very fun addition to the loop if your up for it.

Why bomb Otero when you can fly down Birdhouse? This loop contains the most challenging, fast, and flowy downhills in Otero canyon.
