One of the closest and most popular areas to the Braesyde parking lot. This large piece of rock has a handful of different areas with quality climbing mostly sport and some trad.
The climbing areas here all face the sun most of the day but the walls on the lower half are protected a bit with trees. There is usually a nice breeze moving through Shady Valley all day.

Getting There 

When you get to the top of the the stairs from hell you'll turn left up the Shady Valley. You go past The Fortress and will see some large crags on your left, this is Red Tail. Hard to miss.
