Description

Sunnyside is a nice trad crag with a very short approach. Although there are more difficult lines here, this area is mostly popular for it's moderate lines. Unfortunately, the dimensions of Icebox Canyon limit the best season of the crag, as it is mostly sunny in the summer and mostly shady in the winter. The best routes include Magellanic Cloud and the Cold September Corner.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

From the Icebox Canyon parking lot, hike up the very nice trail into the canyon for about 15 minutes. As the trail becomes close to the north (right) wall of the canyon, start looking for the distinctive corners of the crag and a trail that will bring you to the cliff. It is relatively easy to miss, if you get to the point where the trail drops down into the bottom of the canyon, you've gone too far.
