Description

This is a very beautiful trad climbing area with a wide variety of colors in the rock and an array of features as well. Dihedrals, cracks, smooth faces are all prominent here. It seems to get little sun especially after noon. Be aware of the rock art, there are numerous petroglyphs and pictographs - don't climb on them. Several routes are now off limits due to the presence of rock art. Descend these single pitch routes by walking off right.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

Park in Willow Springs where the road turns to dirt. Follow the trail marked Petroglyph Wall Trail across the drainage. The trail takes you directly to the crag in about five minutes.

That climb is called Zee Bee Dee or something like that. I agree it is no 5.10. At the Gunks 5.8 tops. Jan 3, 2016

I hopped on some climb, rated 10a in the book, to the left of peaches. Had a bulgy start, then a scramble to a tree. Forgot what it was called, but it was not 10a in the slightest. Easy 5.8 or so. Had a fun start and an anchor at the top. Feb 3, 2015
