Description Suggest change

West facing, short, easy, mostly bolted routes on quality rock. Quick approach, popular, good for beginning leaders.

Getting There Suggest change

As you approach Rock Canyon from the parking area, this will be the first rock on the right. As you are hiking you will see a water tank on your left. Red Slab is the slab on the south side of the road at the entrance to the canyon proper. Hike up and to the right for a 5 minute approach from the "old" road. Approximately 10-15 minute approach from the parking lot.
