Description

This area contains excellent short routes on good varnished rock as well as longer routes. Many of the routes are shady, making this a good place to hide in warm weather.

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

Getting There

Park at the Icebox canyon trailhead, just past Willow Spring on the loop road. Approaches start on a good trail leading south from the parking lot.
