On Tuesday Peter and I rode the Sandia Tramway to the crest of the mountain, and walked the La Luz trail back down to where the van was parked. The tram is the second longest in the world and offers some magnificent views of Albuquerque and the mountain features in the Sandias.
From the crest of the mountain back to the van, the hike was approximately 10 miles long. Peter and I managed to do it in about 4 hours which included significant pauses to scout highlines. We found a magnificent spot near the top of the La Luz trail with easy access to lines up to 250 meters.
