RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


This tall, north-facing wall is directly across the canyon from Olive Oil on Rose Tower.

Getting There 

Hike toward Juniper Canyon and turn right (west) to enter the narrow canyon leading up to the base of Olive Oil. Continue past the base of Olive Oil for another 50 yards or so, then move left through an area of heavy brush to a narrow saddle in the thin ridge which splits the canyon. As soon as you cross the saddle, turn right and climb up a short distance to a vertical chimney tunnel. Scramble through this. Aquarium and its adjacent routes are directly across the canyon. Alternatively, continue upstream to reach several other routes.

Delightful climbing ascends the corner to a stance where the crack widens to hand size. Pitch 2 follows the crack to its end, then frictions up and left to another crack, eventually belaying beneath a steeper section. Three more pitches go up the crack system to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
