RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Best cliff here, perfectly overhanging, northwest-facing wall, just north of Trophy towards Turtlehead Peak. Hides the hardest collection of routes at Red Rocks and is probably the best wall for 13s. Not a crowded area either... yet... Not the greatest warm-ups though.

Getting There 

Hike as you're headed towards The Trophy Wall but continue straight where Trophy trail heads right on Turtlehead trail. Once walls diminish, curve right down backside of cliffband til you see the sweeping overhanging wall about 70 ft tall. (This wall can also be accessed by hiking through Trophy area and down backside of cliff through a ravine -- not recommended).

25 ft right of Go a Hundred. Start behind little bush on small holds up two bolts then slightly left then straight up to ok rest, then distinct crux involving a reach high right to bad sloper/crimp. Highstep left foot to crotch grab a miserable lil sidepull then huck straight up to good lefthand finger ledge. Continue straight up to tricky slab anchor. Best route of its grade at Red Rocks, mega-classic and a must do!! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV

No doubt, the BEST wall at Red Rocks for hard routes. Great on warmer days.
