Description

This is a excellent quick or "after-work" crag with a short approach and shade anytime after about noon! Rock quality varies highly between routes so be careful and these routes are NEVER crowded so go enjoy a day of good climbing.

Getting There

Park in the Red Springs Parking area and head straight up the hill on the marked trail toward the first large vertical cliff facing east. This cliff is easy to identify by the vertical thin cracks heading up the face. This crag is the "lower tier" directly beneath the large cliff with the Classic Corner of Calico climb. Just look for three rounded cliffs with cracks through their center. Approach should take no more than 10 minutes at most.

Thanks John. It was very hard to notice the other listing since no area name was provided (or did not match the guidebook) and there was no location provided (I added one to improve the page). Jan 22, 2016

Great, so just delete the routes and the area you have posted. You can request from an administrator to change the name of Red Springs Rock Lower Tier to Jabba the Hut.

These routes have already been listed for 9 years elsewhere and some of the routes have dozens of ticks.

We don't need the same routes listed twice in the database. Jan 22, 2016

I especially liked the part where John thanks me for adding coordinates and improving the page. Just a stand up guy with solid manners.

Also, I want to say 'Hi' to John when he trolls me again later (as he is assured to do). Aug 30, 2016
What is it with climbers from Vegas?

I especially liked the part where Jim H thanks himself for adding coordinates and improving the page. Just a stand up guy with solid manners.

Hope your arm you broke patting yourself on the back (along with the butthurt) heals quickly.

Hey, Jim H, it's not hard to understand how Mountain Project works. If you can improve a route or area description, just add a comment. Or contact the original poster or the area admin. Adding a duplicate page is not the right way to go. If you follow this advice closely, I'm sure you'll receive the gratitude and appreciation you seek. Sep 1, 2016
