This awesome and under-visited wall is home to several substantial Grade IV trad routes. Spanning the distance between the Fin on the left and Resolution Arete on the right, the Horseshoe Wall towers above the Sherwood Forest in one of the most beautiful expanses of stone at Red Rocks. For the most part the routes are serious and involved, but outstanding all the same.
Approach by any of the excellent routes on the lower routes like the Pink Tornados or the much easier Willy's Couloir. Either way expect a couple of hours of exertion to get to Sherwood Forest.
