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

Description

South of Windy Canyon, the cliffs get smaller and the mountainsides more broken up. There is still some good climbing on some small outcrops, and the crowds generally pass these areas up.

Getting There

There are three main ways to gain access to these crags. The Chocolate Rocks area can be reached directly from Highway 160. If you are going to the Illusion Crags area and are looking for the easiest, but longer drive, start by following the Windy Peak aprroach, and then continue south for another mile or so to a parking area. A shorter approach to the Illusion Crags can be made on a more direct dirt road, but it requires a suitable car and confident driving.
