Description

Trad routes 1-4 pitches long.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

Follow the usual road to Black Velvet, but turn left at the Windy Peak fork. Drive until you find a good turnout beneath the east face and go up the steep hillside.

As noted in the Handren guide, rappelling The Lovely Bones makes for a pretty pleasant descent for routes in the vicinity of Diet Delight. Three raps with a single 70m rope; watch the rope ends! The top anchor is a bit hard to find, but we built a cairn on the ledge above that should make it a bit easier. Nov 6, 2016

30 minutes is accurate if you're a fast uphill hiker, 45 minutes might be more likely... Park in the same locale as if you're going up to the South Face. Apr 15, 2009

How long is the approach to this crag? The Handren guide I think says 30 minutes. Is that accurate?

Do you start from the same place as for climbs on Windy Peak (S Face)? Apr 15, 2009
