Description

I believe the type of rock is a sandstone with a matrix of quartzite cobbles. I know there is one pay campground on the river closer to Carbondale, although I am sure there is free camping elsewhere. I just don't know where. I am no expert on this area, I just know it's very classic and was wanting to put it on this site with the hope others could contribute more information.

Redstone is a cute town with a great general store, and the river makes a great place to relax with a beer after climbing. There are hot springs about 2 miles upstream from town.

Getting There

Head south on 133 from Carbondale.

When is this area snow free? I was thinking of taking a drive out to them tomorrow if it's not too early. Apr 23, 2014
Could you add a description of the Loft and it's problems? What's a good guidebook for the area? What are the starting holds for Sex after 50? Jan 17, 2014

Hmm, you might be referring to the Loft, which sits above the main boulders. It's in the guidebook. Also, Sex After 50 is on the back side of the Weider Boulder. If you go up the trail to it, go around to the right, and then head left when you reach the southeast corner of the boulder. It's not obvious until you're back there, and a month or so ago there was zero chalk on it. Jan 7, 2014
I heard about new boulders here that are called the Lone Star Boulders and are above the rest. Does anyone know where these are? Or a new problem displayed in Rock and Ice called Sex after 50, V9...where is it located? Jan 7, 2014
