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


This very sunny cliff contains high quality one pitch climbs which are mostly bolted and relatively long -- generally two ropes are needed to rappel.

Getting There 

This wall is at most a ten minute walk east from the Sandstone Quarry parking area. Before going to this cliff for the first time, it is a good idea to identify it from the road, on the drive to the parking lot, using the photo in Swain.

Swain includes complicated direction for finding the cliff, which can be simplified to take a trail from the southeast corner of the parking lot and follow your nose.

Red Heat 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  NV : Red Rock : ... : Running Man Wall
scramble up to the top of the gully to the right of running man. start up the left-leaning, right facing dihedrals (the set on the right) until you reach the bolt line. zig zag your way up the face to the anchor in the bigger of the two huge huecos at the top of the wall. Double ropes would have been nice to reduce drag. This is an awesome adventure sport route!!! All the bolts are 10 - 20 feet apart. soft, sandy, slopey crimps on a steep slab. could be harder than 10d at this point....[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
