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

Description 

This cliff features several single pitch routes harder than the 5.10 and only a handful of moderates. Predominantly trad. Near the Falls there is little sun throughout the day, but most of the crag will get sun for the first half of the day unless it is deep Winter. Scenic.
