Description

Fun little crag with sun early and shade later in the day. All routes have hook anchors. Just drop your rope into the hooks and lower/top rope directly off of the anchors. The first 2 routes share an anchor.

Bring a helmet and try to belay out of the drop zone for rocks. It is really dirty and will need many laps before it is cleaned up so know that going in.

All routes can be set up for top-rope climbing. Scramble to the top of the formation, locate the single bolt up there and lower in to the anchors. Clip in, pull your rope and drop it into the hooks.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

Go straight down to the wash and up the gully towards The Dog Wall. Instead of turning right, look straight up the wash and The Shipwreck will be staring at you. 5-7 mins.
