Climbing in Red Rocks after heavy rain can permanently damage the rock! 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.

Getting There 

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.

I haven't been on this yet, so probably somebody else could write a better description. This is the most obvious crack on the face, located on the far right. Route goes up a wide section through a roof, then continues on at a lower angle to the same bolted anchor as Head Case.The only other thing I'm going to say is . . .
