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

Description 

This is a excellent quick or "after-work" crag with a short approach and shade anytime after about noon! Rock quality varies highly between routes so be careful and these routes are NEVER crowded so go enjoy a day of good climbing.

Getting There 

Park in the Red Springs Parking area and head straight up the hill on the marked trail toward the first large vertical cliff facing east. This cliff is easy to identify by the vertical thin cracks heading up the face. This crag is the "lower tier" directly beneath the large cliff with the Classic Corner of Calico climb. Just look for three rounded cliffs with cracks through their center. Approach should take no more than 10 minutes at most.

This is the very obvious thin crack going up through the dead center of this section of the crag. The crux is half way up the route on some thin finger jams and face holds. Good route but somewhat serious lead as gear can get thin and its sometimes hard to see your placements and some of the rock might be suspect. Climb with soft sandstone technique and get extra placements in wherever possible. Fun!...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV

Thanks John. It was very hard to notice the other listing since no area name was provided (or did not match the guidebook) and there was no location provided (I added one to improve the page).

Great, so just delete the routes and the area you have posted. You can request from an administrator to change the name of Red Springs Rock Lower Tier to Jabba the Hut.

These routes have already been listed for 9 years elsewhere and some of the routes have dozens of ticks.

We don't need the same routes listed twice in the database.
