|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
The Hidden Wall sits at the top of the south fork of Ice Box canyon. The wall is Guarded by one of the biggest approachs in all of Red Rock. The approach from the Icebox trail head is reported to involve multiple 5th class sections and serious route finding. Facing north east the wall see's very little sun. There is currently only one reported route.
The descent is to descend Ice box, however hiking to the Rocky Gap road may be more desirable.
Approach by climbing the south fork of Ice Box canyon. The approach will take several hours.
