Description

Around the corner, across a drainage and to the southwest of Angel Food Wall lies this lesser known cliff. The Ledger Crags face south, giving it plenty of sunshine, making for a good winter destination. The cliff has striking, glass-like, chocolate rock that often looks glossy and wet from the road.

It is possible to descend from the routes by walking left, down in to the drainage back to the the base of the rock, but this gully has proven to be quite over-grown with scrub oak. Another alternative is to scramble to the right of The Ledger about 200 feet, down a gully to a rappel tree. One rappel with two 60 meter ropes gets you back to the ground.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

Approach from Willow Springs parking area by hiking on the trail that heads north-east toward White Rock Spring. Locate the crags between two prominent gullies and leave the trail once past the first drainage. Head across open terrain to the base. The two documented climbs are on the left side of the cliff.
