Description

This is a warm, south-facing crag with a nice view. The namesake route is a Red Rocks classic.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

Hike into Pine Creek Canyon past Topless Twins, etc, staying on a trail toward the right side of the canyon. There will be a chossy red cliff band on your righthand side, with lighter crags towering above. If you keep your eyes peeled you will see a nice splitter in white rock up there, maybe 50-75' above the floor of the canyon. That's Out of Control. Right about the time you reach the toe of Mescalito on your left, the red band on your right will give way into an obvious talus gully. Walk up here, then double back on a big ledge system about 100 yards.

Nice spot to enjoy a sunny day at Red Rock in winter. Great "chill area" at the base of RC/OOC, but big loose blocks mean that it's not ideal for kids/dogs/helmetless peeps. Worth the walk and proximate to a lot of other good climbing. Jan 23, 2012
