Bull Market Rock Climbing
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
An obvious, somewhat aesthetic crag that sits just inside the big alcove you trek through on your way to the Trophy. This southwest facing crag gets lots of sun (although the routes on the left may get some shade)- but due to the gully at the base, the belayer gets quite a bit of shade.
The rock here is soft- really soft, so a stick clip is highly recommended for the high first bolts.
This wall is really the lower part of the Satellite Wall, and, if the routes stay intact, can be used for a warm-up area.
Approach as for the Trophy- follow the signs for Turtlehead Peak until you come to a large formation on your right that has a big 'meadow' like area just inside of it with a striking sheer orange cliff inside it (this is the Drive In). Cut right into the 'meadow' and look to your right. Look for the large white buttress with the blocky orange roofs in the middle (This is Fidelity Select). Give yourself about 20 minutes to get there.
Climbing Season For the Sandstone Quarry area.
