Alcohol Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Alcohol Wall is quite stout
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
A great assortment of somewhat necky long one pitch routes that never see sun. Double rope raps all on routes.
From Lotta Balls move West and out on an exposed ledge system. Crossing the ledge can be a bit wet in places in the spring. The exposure is significant, the traverse across the ledge system is easy (no need to rope up).
