Fixx Cliff is a traditional crag that is characterized by tricky gear placements and the occasional bolt for protection. All of the anchors for the climbs on this crag are gear anchors and should remain that way to preserve and respect the style that these routes were put up with. The top of the cliff allows many opportunities for gear anchors and an easy scramble to the north will get you back to the base quickly. Fixx Cliff receives sun for the majority of the day as it faces to the south west. The majority of the routes on the cliff are are in the 5.11 range. Even though this is a traditional crag many face holds can be found while climbing on the routes. If you are not feeling up to leading 5.11 then an easy scramble from the north end of the crag will get you to the top so you can set up a top rope. The classic climb of the cliff is Saved by Zero and is a must if you climb at the Fixx Cliff.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

Follow the same directions as for Dog Wall, but continue to the top of the gully. Once you are to the top of the gully where it opens up to a flat ledge the Fixx Cliff is directly to your right. The Tuna and Chips wall will be about 20 yards in front of you at the top of the gully. If you run into this wall you have gone to far.

Andy, the one bolted (retro'd) anchor up there was screwed up by whoever put it in, which isn't helping the case for any others. Check out the empty hole beside the right bolt-NICE and close to the bolt. Thoughtful AND safe. Don't expect that thing to last long, it ain't original and there's a solid gear anchor a few feet above. The wall is for adventure climbing. More bolts would just make it fast-food. Worth the effort but not a pushover crag. It's nice to have some walls that take thinking *and* forearms.

This wall gets HOT after about 10 a.m. Better winter crag than summer. May 10, 2012

Would it be out of line to suggest that these routes (not all of them but a select few) need bolted anchors? It's funny to me that the FA'ers of these routes put bolts in a number of these climbs but neglected anchors for the top out. Apr 1, 2012
Eric, did you climb these routes before posting them? Dec 19, 2011
