DescriptionHidden Falls Wall is a pleasant place to escape the heat of the summer, being in the shade for most of the day. It might get a sliver of sun briefly around 1pm in the summer but otherwise it remains quite cool. With six single pitch routes topping out at 100 feet, in the range of 5.9 to 5.11c, and with trad, sport and mixed, face and crack, there is a little something for everyone. Some routes can be top roped by climbing other routes. Descend by rappelling from bolt anchors.
Also known as Bigfoot Wall.
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 ThereTake the Red Rock Loop road past the highest point to the Willow Springs turn-off. Park at the first lot which is on the left and features an outhouse. Look south for a canyon featuring a lot of black rock a couple of hundred yards from the road. The Wall is on the left. Take the Hidden Falls trail south from the lot, pass the spring with the raised walkway, pass the shady spot with the memorial bench and look up. The northwest facing tower is above you to the left and the Hidden Falls are about 200 feet further up the trail. Head left up a short climbers trail to the crag. Approach time is about ten minutes.
