Description

A south facing crag with a variety of routes from 5.7 - 5.9. Climbs are about 5 pitches or so.

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

Getting There

Directions are found in the Windy Canyon description. The descent is easy by Red Rocks standards - follow cairns off the back of the rock to a gully. Follow this down a short ways, looking for a small saddle on the left. Cut over to this saddle and then down ledges to the base of the face.
