Home to the best climbing on the North side of the park. Several lines of good quality can be found here.

Getting There 

Red Bird Statue Area is just to the West of the Red Bird Statue.

Follow directions for the North side continue as below:

If approaching from "the first parking area on your left" locate a trail at the Northeast corner of the lot (by the toilets) and follow it to the cliffs. This trail will deposit you virtually on top of the Red Bird Statue Area.

If approaching from "the Observation Tower Parking area" follow the Red Bird Trail past Red Bird Statue until an obvious trail comes in from the left. You are now at the top of the Red Bird Statue Area.

Bottom Access:

An access gully is located just to the East of the top of the climbs.

Has anyone climbed to the left of the 5.8 Crack? I have always looked at it and I have heard it is nice climbing. Anybody else's advice?

Does anyone have any info on the small bouldering problem that starts under (beneath the overhang at the ground) the 5.6 in the redbird area? (this is the face that peaks outward about 30ft south of the main redbird wall - black and white steaked routes, etc)

It's pretty difficult to spot with all of the rocks beneath it, but well worth it for the fun moves (especially the start). Probably in the range of V3 PG13.
