The Case Face Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Case Face
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
This crag is conveniently easy to get to from the Ragged Edges Area
, and hosts several moderate lines of good quality. Protection is mostly mixed.
Approach as for Ragged Edges Area
. I like to park at the first parking area, and then follow the main trail until an obvious right turn by a large boulder brings you closer to the cliff. From Ragged Edges
, walk north along the base of the cliff and follow the best trail you can find that continues uphill and right. Soon you will arrive at a nice, large ledge at the base of the Case Face.

This route is located about 10 feet right of the left side of the Case Face. Climb a steep section past a bolt (5.7 crux) into a crux. Continue up easier ground following this left-trending crack. Belay at the top of the crack wherever possible. This is a fun, easy trad lead.Descent:A slightly nerve-wracking downclimb is possible. From the belay, traverse left across a slab (scary) to a corner, then downclimb a slab towards the base of the climb. It also appears that some people rap from a smal...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
