Description

An easily accessed area containing several different sub-areas. Climbs are mostly one pitch climbs and run the full gamut of ratings.

Running Man is the classic, but don't forget Chrysler Crack a long 5.9 offwidth/squeeze Chimney.
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 Sandstone Quarry parking lot, a little way past the second pullout and, according to Swain, 2.7 miles along the loop road. Paths lead west, north and east to the sub-areas.
