Climbing in Red Rocks after heavy rain can permanently damage the rock! MORE INFO >>>


This nice sport area has a good mixture of 5.10 to 5.12 climbing. It is a bit involved to get to and entails some 4 class climbing. It should be more popular than it is.

Getting There 

From the first pullout hike up the drainage as if going to the Dog Wall. Continue past both the Dog Wall and the Fixx Cliff. Once past the Fixx Cliff wander up and right into a slot. Fourth class up to the spacious belay ledge.

The rock down low on this one is a bit suspect looking but seemed solid enough. Hard overhanging crimps and dynos will get you to a difficult clip on the 4th bolt. Then if you're short you will have one more strenous long move to pull over the bulge to easier ground. This move may be easier if you are over 6' as you will be able to reach past the last crux move....[more]   Browse More Classics in NV

You can also access this wall as per Tuna and Chips by hiking towards Panty Wall, then hooking back right into a flat wash below. This is way more relaxed than the gully scramble, but quite a bit longer.

You can also avoid the 4th class scramble by continuing up the main drainage past the wall to the top, then hooking left up the slabs above, and then hooking left again into a slot, which is the top of the Oasis wall, just below Money.
