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

Description [Suggest Change]

Willow Springs is located roughly seven miles along the loop road. It is host to several single pitch traditional climbs of very good quality. The approaches are generally short and easy. One can find climbs from 5.6 to 5.11 in the area. Some of the climbs are shaded most of the year making them a good early outing to beat the summer heat. The parking is limited and it can get crowded on weekends with good weather. There are outhouses at Lost Creek parking lot and Willow Springs picnic area. The presence of Indian rock art is one of the draws to the area. Please respect these historical markings and do not climb anywhere they are present. Recommended routes are “Ragged Edges” “Little Big Horn” “Black Track” “Left Out”. Some multi pitch routes can be found on the tier above Lost Creek. There are some quality boulders in the picnic area too. This area has an abundance of short accessible hikes and a children’s discovery trail. Please set a good example for all those spectators.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Drive about 7.5 miles into the scenic loop, then turn right on the paved two-way road leading into the Willow Spring area. Park soon for routes in the southern part, or continue farther in for climbs back near Ragged Edges.
