Description Suggest change

Upper Red Tail, unsurprisingly, directly above Lower Red Tail. Like the other Red Tail walls, this is a popular area. Be careful not to send small rocks off the ledge down to Lower Red Tail!

Getting There Suggest change

Access this area by climbing a Lower Red Tail route or by walking up the far left side as you reach the Red Tail Group.
