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


This is a short, fun little cliff for those not up to Cannabis' steepness. There are two very good routes here- Hand Drilled Heaven and Turkey Trot. The other two dont look as appealing.

Getting There 

Park in Calico at the end near the cul-de-sac and head for the boulders, taking a right and following it around past Monkey Bars, eventually dropping into the wash. Follow this for a ways, passing Conundrum and keeping an eye up and right for the cliff. The cliff sits high and right out of the wash, about 100 yards or so before Cannabis.

This route still has loose holds on it. If you go for the right holds though those are usually good. Use a couple good underclings to climb past the first bolt then to a good position for second bolt. Continue using edges and positive holds fight the pump to reach the anchor. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
