Hike Distance?

This is in a series of 28 boxes hidden in 14 states.

While traveling on I-40 westbound from Gallup, exit at the Love's Truck Stop in West Gallup. Turn right to go north. Turn right on County Road #1. There is no sign for this road, just look for Augie's Truck Service on your left. Turn Left on Mentmore Road. Look for the Mentmore Rock Climbing Area entrance on left. Go .3 miles past the entrance and look for the 1st small opening in the green fence on your right. Now look on the left side of the road for a huge rock face. Go to the widest black/grey/green stripe of mineral runoff on the face of the rock that runs to the ground. From here, go 14 steps at 25 degrees, 6 steps at 90 degrees, and 6 steps at 155 degrees. You should now have come around to the end of the big rock face. Find the split behind it seperating it from another huge rock. It should look like a little canyon in between them. Find the first flat rock at the entrance to this canyon that is tilted upwards towards the entrance. Look underneath for the box. Please rehide well, and have fun!
