Description

There is some fantastic bouldering to be found in Black Velvet, and it is well worth the drive and hike out. There are lots of good moderates in addition to a couple of mega-classics like Wet Dream (V12).
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

Park at the Black Velvet parking lot and walk up the trail towards the canyon. The trail will pass the Twin Towers boulders as well as a few others on the way into the canyon.
