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


Good crag spot for easy routes. Mostly decent rock with a share of solid varnish and friable holds. All routes are 90' or less. Very traditional. No bolts or fixed gear, and all routes have walk off with 4th/5th class.Far away from the Ragged Edges crowds.

Getting There

Located up on the third tier of cliffs, between Nadia's nine and N Plus Ultra areas.(Approach starts the same as above mentioned area's). Start at Lost Creek parking lot and follow main trail approx. 100yds until sign at a fork. This is the split for the Icebox/red rock loop/smyc trail. Follow this for another few hundred yards to where the soil turns red. At this point your going up and right towards N Plus Ultra descent. Several options are present with 4th and 5th class. The scramble is well marked with cairns from hikers who frequent the area.

I am looking for a little bit better beta on the approach. Just getting back into trad, and like the idea of these easy single pitch routes. Jul 7, 2014
The idea is most likely a lot better than the reality of shakefesting your way up the 2nd ascent of some crunchy line that takes more help to find than has already been given. Much wiser would be spending some time on Tonto and routes to its left til you're comfortable climbing on gear again. Hope that clarifies things. This is an obscure crag with no known repeats, not a well-worn practice area close to the car. If you find it, post up and tell me how right/wrong I was. Jul 7, 2014

With the pictures and somewhat vauge location description provided this area should be easy to locate. I MIGHT add a overview pic taken from the loop road if more climbers take an interest in the area. In all honesty if you cant get there with the beta provided your probably a rescue waiting to happen. I put up the majority of these routes in a late afternoon by myself carrying 2 60m ropes and a clean rack to 5". Tisk tisk Killy Willy!

To Tony and anyone else who might want to go there: Only 3 of these routes posted at the "Lost and Found crag" are safe and protectable by "classroom climber" standards. 1. Rope Souled Ho 5.4, 2. Communist Plan 5.7, and 3. Lost and Found 5.5. The route "Dont Mind Dyin'" 5.10 is in fact an x rated route and may not even be repeatable due to the fact that I broke crucial holds off at the crux with my feet. Give it a try and you'll understand the name given.

The remainder of the routes can be considered easy but with POSSIBLY marginal pro and runouts depending on who you are. Jim Mercer and I seemed to have enjoyed "Slobber Knob Job" 5.6 the most of all the routes here if memory serves me. ALL of the routes can be descended by easy scrambling/downclimbing to the sides of formations. I did one dicey rappel almost directly above "Lost and Found" off of a crapy flake with blue 1" tubular webbing. Almost 2 years later in May 2015 the webbing was still observed there when descending from Goodman Peak on another first ascent foray.

WOW! Thats alot of unnecessary beta! Maybe I should wear a gopro and film the approach so the classroom climbers can get there... Jul 17, 2015
