BETA PHOTO: Second Pullout Overview
|Climbing in Red Rocks after heavy rain can permanently damage the rock! MORE INFO >>>|
The Sweet Pain Wall is popular because it is overhung and is shady on summer afternoons. Although there is one 5.8 here the majority of the routes at this wall are in the 5.11 range.

The approach to the Sweet Pain Wall is the same as for the Black Corridor, but instead of walking up onto the second section of slick rock continue walking (west) up the sandy wash and turn north up the first side canyon you come to.

This is nice and shady when the rest of the 2nd pullout is in the sun in the afternoon.
