Description

Receives sun until mid-day, then shade until the sun sets. In the warmer months this cliff goes in the shade around 2:00 pm, making it possible to climb until the park closes. It is easily seen from the parking lot of the Sandstone Quarry. Since this is a new area (summer 2008) the routes will have to be climbed some in order to become crisp and clean.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

Approach as for Sonic Youth - head west off of the main trail and go up a small ridge just right of the boulder in the Sandstone Quarry. Walk the ridge heading towards the Sonic Youth cliff. NOTE: as you are walking the ridge you are parallel to The Grindhouse. Descend the gully and instead of turning right to go to the Sonic Youth wall, turn left and skirt along some slabby rock that descends into a wash. Walk 75 yards or so and the rock will curve gently to the right. A natural stair case will lead up to the base of the cliff.

Thanks for continuing to provide us with bolted pleasures Mr. Moore! Checked out the Grindhouse yesterday... the routes are good. Grades a bit stiff (a la wake up wall), moves are varied and cool. The snow melted some sand on the holds, bring a brush for some until they clean up. Good area, solid rock, and great chill spot on the terrace. You may want to stick clip the first bolt on some of these. Did the first three from the left and they clean up real nice after just a run or two on them. Jan 12, 2010
