The Straight Shooter Wall is a relatively short crag for Red Rocks and while it shares geology and Geography with its nearby twin, the Brass Wall, is has routes of a different character. Like it's neighbor, it is clearly not the Red Rocks classic canyon wall nor the classic Red Rocks sport crag with the wild red overhangs. It is however, a nice crag with a day or half-day's worth of 5.11 mixed or bolted climbs and worth a visit if in the area.
Park as for Pine Creek Canyon and approach initially as for the Mescalito's 'dark side.' After spotting the Beer And Ice Gully, head in. To the left of this gully is the Brass Wall, and to the right is Straight Shooter Wall. This means to watch the huge gully above dirty and broken red cliff band. Head toward this on a maze of ambiguous trails to reach the edge of the soft red cliff band. This dirt-piled mess can be soloed over, but that is dicey.
