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

Description

The crag has a squat demeanor and is characterized by three things. First there is approximately forty-feet of third class terrain beneath the routes. Second, there are two obvious crack systems on the rock. Each of these cut up opposite sides of the crag's crest. And third, it is just off the trail across the grassy drainage just to the left of the approach gully to the Fox.

The third class at the bottom of this crag has been used by guides for multi-pitch transition practice for years. The crag has been used for the same purpose by the Red Rock Rendezvous folks.

The third class area has been identified by the Red Rock Rendezvous event permit as "Third Class between Ranch Hands and Dickies Cliff."

There are three known routes on the crag, but as of this writing, information is only available about one of them...Snake Charmer. Snake Charmer climbs the dogleg crack on the right side of the crag. An unknown and unnamed bolted line ascends the center of the crag and another s shaped crack dominates the left side of the crag.

Getting There

This crag can be found just right of the Existential Wall and just left of the approach gully to the Fox.
