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


I'm sure you have found yourself in the same situation, thumbing through the guidebook looking for somewhere you haven't been a hundred times. I had always looked at this cliff in the book,thinking it would be worth checking out, but just never made it there. Even though this cliff was bolted in the early 90's, it still has a bit more fragile rock than other cliffs of the same era. It seems that this little cliff has seen only a small amount of traffic in 20 years.
However, you should come and check this place out as this cliff boasts a handful of quite good routes. It is further proof that even the less visited cliffs in Red Rock have some gems that are worth the 15 minute approach. This cliff faces west and was shady well until mid afternoon. It does seem to catch quite a bit of wind.

Getting There 

Hike down to the Circus Wall from the parking area and scramble up and right from there. Head east for about 5 minutes and you will come to the Cactus Massacre wall. Once here, head up the gully to the north, and you will see the steep wall up and right.

SSHHHH!!! not so loud!This is the easiest sport route at the cliff, and climbing with quiet feet my help you stay on the set, since the holds are kind of fragile, so keep it down already. So the first bolt on this has a homemade hanger that looks like it is as thin as a piece of paper, the climbing seems to head left when the bolts head right, but this route isn't really all that bad. I wouldn't come here just for this one, but it serves as a good warm up for the cliff. Start on the left end ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
