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

Description

This north-facing cliff offers several moderate climbs to warm-up on before hiking to the other nearby cliffs. There are also a selection of 5.12 climbs located at this cliff if you choose to stay here for the day. Most of the climbs are bolted sport routes, but there are a couple moderate single-pitch trad lines as well (5.8ish).

Getting There

The cliff is about a fifteen minute hike NW of the SQ parking lot. Follow the main trail until it veers into the wash. Pass by the large white boulder and continue on the main trail until you see a sign for Turtlehead Peak on the left. Take this left, and follow this trail about 250 yards and head up the mound of dirt. From atop this mound you will be able to see the white outcroppings on the left (west). Before the trail veers back into the wash go left across the white slabs and head toward the north-facing Wake-up wall. The face consists of the lighter colored sandstone and has the black patina varnish covering it.

When I was at this wall in December I noticed another new route to the left of "Shut Up and Climb' that had 5 bolts to some brand new anchor chains. I wasn't sure if this was a new route or if someone had added some bolts/rebolted First Born. If anyone has any information about this please let me know so I can update the routes. =)

As of 11/7/09, most of the routes on the right portion of the cliff have had anchor replacement/additions. Native Son has new anchors. Good Morning (The Burrito) has its' own anchors and no longer shares with Pain Check. Pain Check now has its' own anchors. Rise and Whine and The Healer now have their own anchors and no longer share chains. The Healer has also had ALL bolts replaced.

Shape of Things and Where Egos Dare have not seen updates as I ran out of hardware. I will replace these as soon as I get more.
