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

Description

Best cliff here, perfectly overhanging, northwest-facing wall, just north of Trophy towards Turtlehead Peak. Hides the hardest collection of routes at Red Rocks and is probably the best wall for 13s. Not a crowded area either... yet... Not the greatest warm-ups though.

Getting There

Follow the approach instructions for The Trophy Wall. Once at the base of Trophy Wall, continue past it on the downhill slab. Aim for the left side of a narrow break in the slab. Some very minor scrambling is required if you do this correctly. Once deposited low into the foliage, head left. Secret 13 is immediately on the left. The approach time is about 25 minutes if you know where you are going - use the MP map if you don't.

You can also approach the crag from the north by staying on the Turtlehead peak trail until the walls diminish and hanging a right, but this approach takes at least 10 minutes longer and is only slightly easier.
