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


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.

Pretty fun route with a thin and difficult crux right at the start. The start might be difficult to protect on lead so be careful. After the initial thin section; great and varied FUN finger crack to practice finger jams the rest of the way to the juggy roof move at top!...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
