Description

Riding Hood Wall has a few nice crack climbs on its north face. This is one of the larger rock formations in the Calico Basin area. One can descend any route by rapping off the west face, and then down climbing a steep gully.
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 Red Springs Picnic Area. Get there by taking the Calico Basin road to a T-junction, then take a left and park. Walk the trail north and west a short while, passing close by to the Cannibal Crag (huge boulder with bolted routes and overhanging faces). Continue a short ways down the trail, then wander up left through the boulders and slabs towards the largest rock formation in sight. This is the Riding Hood Wall.

Alternatively, park as for Cannibal Crag and approach from there.
