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

Description

This is the band of rock just south and east of the Whiskey Peak descent gully. The climbs here are generally one-pitch traditional routes. The Cadillac Crack is a beautiful route that would be a classic anywhere, and there are several other good quality lines. The rock is shady in the afternoon- perfect to top off the day after a climb on Whiskey Peak.Most of these routes use a 2-rope rappel for descent.

Getting There

When approaching from the parking area, go up the standard trail toward Frogland. When reaching the T junction at the base of the cliff, turn left (east) and follow the trail to the descent gully. Cross the gully and scramble to the cliffs on the opposite side. (Of course, if you are descending from the top of Whiskey Peak, just bear right at the base of the gully and you are right there.)
