Description

The Circus Wall gets afternoon sun and is low and protected from some of the weather. Far from being secluded, it gets its name from the human circus going on behind you at the parking lot while you are climbing. Along with Dog Wall, this is among the most prominent and nearby crags to the first pull-out. You are sure to enjoy all of the maddening noise of the non-climbing crowds while climbing there. The rock is OK, not the best or worst red-rocks has to offer. THe climbs are either hard bolted lines, or slightly scary trad or mixed lines.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

Climb down and right in the most direct path possible from the first pullout to the low-point of the golly below. Part way down, a low wall with a huge natural arch will become visible. This is circus wall. The approach is perhaps 400 meters and 5 minutes long.
