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


A sunny crag at the saddle between Calico Basin and the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. This crag's belay ledges offer incredible views into the park to the west and the city to the east. The views from the cliff face are even more spectacular - don't forget to look! All routes are protected at the top with anchors. Coupled with a nice Mark Limage route, (November Daze, 5.7, 100') about 50 feet west of Interproximal Stripper, this is an easy place to spend a full day with friends. Enjoy!

Getting There

Approach as for all other routes in Calico Basin and expect a 25-35 minute approach. Hike all the way to the top of the saddle. This crag is about 100 feet short of the summit and on the right (North) side.

Thanks Todd, and Mike!
Looks like a great place to bring family or friends that may be new to climbing, or..... "rehab" climbing for partners/friends recovering from injuries. ; )
I can't wait to get my check up! Such a beautiful area!
Thanks for all your hard work guys! Sep 26, 2006

awesome great fun climbing for the whole family, except i dont recommend bringing little kids as the deck is on a perched ledge about 150 feet from the canyon, so if they need supervision dont bring um but other than that this place is awesome for teaching new people it has everything. Oct 22, 2006
Directly underneath the Cut Your Teeth Cliff there are two bolts above a chimney. Does anyone know what this is?

Had a great day out at this climb (Jan. 8th). The crag was in the sun for most of the day, though there was a chilly breeze during the early afternoon. Definatly do not belay from below the climber, there is still a good bit of loose rock coming off the wall. Great views, sunny wall, a variety of climbing levels, lack of crowds, and the fun approach will make returning to this wall a must before the cold season ends :) Jan 16, 2007
This is a nice area, with fun moderate climbing, and a great view of both the Calico Basin area and the Red Rock loop. Unfortunately though, there are sections on a few routes where the bolts have been spray painted to match the surrounding rock, and it was done while the hardware was in-situ. The wall has a "connect the dots," look going on, with over spray radiating out from all the polka dots. I think that camouflaging bolts is a great idea, but please paint the bolts with their appropriate color before installation. Dec 29, 2007

Maybe these routes are cleaning up. Coming here from the Panty Wall, I'd say the ratings are a little stiffer, but still reasonable.

Beautiful place! What a view... Jan 3, 2010

Fun climbs, but the approach is a lot longer than 35 minutes (it took us 1.5 hours), and the scramble to the left to access top rope anchors is not passable. Maybe somebody else is interested in that scramble, but i wouldn't do it without a belay. Oct 28, 2013

An hour and a half?!? Did you walk in from Las Vegas Blvd!? Easy 20-30 min walk Oct 28, 2013

I agree weston. And the scramble for TR set up is not bad at all, no problem. Feb 20, 2014

To the right of September Knights (just around the corner - and in the shade) I found some anchors and climbed up a nice and long, pretty-darn steep jug-haul with some really cool moves...Anybody know what that is? Felt like a 10...Also felt chossed as hell... Apr 11, 2018
