Description

The Blood Wall is a large cliff of dark red rock tucked in on the northern side of the western ridge of Cactus Flower Tower. With its northern exposure, this area is best suited for warmer conditions. Although the approach represents some exercise, there are some routes here with truly excellent rock.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

Hike up the Oak Creek Trail, passing the Solar Slab, until the trail drops into the streambed. Continue a short distance until the left (southern) side of the canyon is dominated by a wide slab capped by a large arch. Third class approaches can be made on either side of the arch. Probably the easiest approach involves walking almost all the way to the fork in the canyon, then following slabs up and back left to the wall. This route is generally class 2 and avoids most of the bushwhacking.

HOWDY! Lost a blue northface jacket and purgatory water bottle on the approach to blood wall. We were actually returning and quite bit and I had not noticed my pack unclipped and dropped these items. :) they are crucial pieces of my big wall gear and I would love to get them back. if you find them, please message me on here and I will pay you to ship them back. I will toss you some bones as well. Climb on!

THIS IS A REPOST FROM A WHILE BACK. I have not heard anything and am trying various other pages. PLEASE let me know if found! Thanks! Mitch Aug 12, 2017
