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


Sun and shade at this excellent cliff. Several quality routes here and well worth spending a day here.

Getting There 

Hike about 50 yards up the creek bed from the Holiday wall then head up left. Look for the tight cleft in the wall. James Brown climbs the face outside and to the left of the gap. The rest of the climbs are in the shade inside the canyon.
