DescriptionA 500' wall with an easy approach that features mostly moderate multi-pitch routes. The wall faces northeast and goes into the shade before noon.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details
Holds rip off and climbs have been and will continue to be permanently damaged due to climbers not respecting this phenomenon. After a heavy storm the rock will remain wet, sometimes for several days. PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB IN RED ROCKS during or after rain. A good rule of thumb is that if the ground near your climb is at all damp (and not powdery dry sand), then do not climb. There are many alternatives (limestone, granite, basalt, and plastic) nearby. ***** HUMAN WASTE ***** Human waste is one of the major issues plaguing Red Rocks. The Las Vegas Climbers Liaison Council identified this problem years ago and has worked to provide "wag bags" free of charge in several locations (Black Velvet, First Pullout, Kraft Mtn/Bouldering, The Gallery, and The Black Corridor). These bags are designed so that you can pack your waste out - consider bringing one to be part of your kit (just like your rope and shoes and lunch) no matter where you go. Once used, please dispose of them properly (do not throw them in the toilets at the parking areas). This project was funded primarily by the American Alpine Club
Getting TherePark at White Rock Spring, a trailhead on the loop road a couple of miles past the Sandstone Quarry accessed by a short dirt road on the right.
Follow a good trail towards the wall. A climbers trail cuts right near where the stream below the wall intersects with the one coming down from the spring. The approach is an easy 30 minutes.
Descend all routes by scrambling southwest over the rib of rock behind the top of Tunnel Vision and then down and left (southeast) in the gully behind the wall. A short rap or easy downclimb is needed at the start. The trail turns left out of the gully at the base of the wall.
