Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Details

Description

This corridor is in the shade most of the day, until the late afternoon. For being as close to the parking lot as it is, this crag is never crowded. This is likely due to the lack of moderates to be found here. Never-the-less, if it is hot outside, and you are looking for shade, and some difficult routes... this might just be your destination.

Getting There

This is the obvious north-south running corridor located about 75 yards due east from the Sandstone Quarry parking lot.

According to my guidebook there are 5 routes on the left side but there now appears to be 7?

The last 4 seem pretty obvious, Churning, SoP, Sunsplash, and M. Skank.

I did the farthest left...cool slopey jugs to some crimps to a ledge and then pull a little roof to the chains. I think that's Pockets of Dirt.? (seemed easy for 11d?) Any idea what the other 2 are? In between Pockets and Churning? Nov 5, 2008

Found a red ATC-guide at the bottom of a gully on our way to Man's Best Friend. If yours, call me at 321-229-1705! Mar 29, 2016

Beautiful little canyon, tucked away from the wind. Watch out for broken glass shards on the ground though if you take your shoes off. Apr 11, 2017
