Description

The Great Red Book Rock is most well known for the Great Red Book route that follows up a glorious dihedral on the left side of the crag. The rock, a giant slab, is visable from the parking lot above and to the right of the Hunter S. Thompson Dome. Facing west, it gets a lot of sun after noon. In addition to the dihedral route which is a 5.8 trad route, there are several mixed and sport routes on the vast face 5.8 - 5.11. The routes end up almost at the top of the Calico formations, where you can get a killer view of the canyons to the west.

Getting There

To get to the Great Red Book Rock, first head to the Black Corridor area from the Second Pullout parking lot. Go through the corridor and hang a hard right up the ramp that skirts below the Hunter S. Thompson Dome. Pass the Dome and Poser Crag and head left up the talus slope to the base of crag.
