Description

Gateway Crag is situated partway up along the north side of Kraft Mountain. A traditional crag oriented around crack climbing. This crag is a good location if you're looking to try some harder cracks and/or not go sport climbing at Sunny & Steep. For a good day out do the 3 popular routes at Winter Heat and then cut over to this crag and do these two. The crag faces northeast and doesn't get much sun.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

This crag can be approached from either west or east via Gateway Canyon.

From the west: From the Kraft parking lot head northwest towards Yin & Yang. Pass Yin & Yang and drop down into the wash and follow the wash past Sunny & Steep, Winter Heat, etc. Boulder hop until you've almost reached Cannabis Crag. Look up and you'll be able to identify a very prominent roof. Follow cairns up the mountain until you're directly below the roof.

From the east: From the Kraft parking lot head east towards the Monkey Bar boulder. Pass the Monkey Bar boulder and drop into Gateway canyon. Follow the wash until just past Cannabis crag. From here look to the south (up the mountain) and you should be able to identify the prominent roof. Follow cairns and a rough trail to the base of the roof.
