Description

The Trophy wall sits in the Northern section of the sandstone quarry area. Steep routes on white rock make this stage-like area a steep-wall sport climbers dream. Many pre-hung draws and long, pumpy routes on great stone make this a great area to climb! If you are going to hang Perma-Draws, please make sure they are equipped with STEEL, as this area has been nitrous for sharp aluminum. Beware the sun... the wall is positioned to receive direct sunlight almost year 'round, but due to the steeps the shade has a clever way of sneaking around.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

From the parking area, follow the main northerly trail into the wash. Once you reach the sign for "Turtlehead Peak" take a left on this trail. and walk about 500 yards up the trail. Pass the long rock formation in the wash called the Twinkie. Take a right directly after passing by the Twinkie. Beware the sensitive plant species in this area and stay on the trail - don't create more social trails! Keep going past the beautiful, smooth wavy south facing rock and you will eventually end up in the drainage next to the Avian Wall. The Avian Wall directly faces the stage/amphitheater of the Trophy Wall.

Whoever rebolted the routes on the left half of the Trophy - your effort is much appreciated (glue in's are the right choice for that crag)! If you need some help learning how to avoid making a glue mess/overfill, please contact me and I'd be glad to share some tips. Also, it is possible to camo bolts by spray painting them at home rather than doing it at the crag (and getting overspray all over the rock itself). Mar 1, 2015

This crag is in need of some rebolting. Beware those heading out there- the first bolt and about the 4th bolt on the Trophy are quite bad. The second bolt on the route to the left of Powder Dry is bad also- there was some white tape around it today to warn people. Dec 21, 2008
