DescriptionThis is the tall, 600', red cliff just north of the town of Redstone. Locals have been putting up hard routes for years, but it's seen a resurgence recently with many new lines and hardware going up. There is now a good variety of climbs, including some moderates and trad lines, but it's mostly harder sport.
There are now nearly 100 routes spread over 5+ bands. It's mostly well-bolted sport climbs, though there are a few good trad lines as well. The rock quality varies from outstanding to terrible.
Each band has its own distinct feel. See the descriptions for each.
The cliff generally faces east, and most routes are in the shade by 1pm in summer.
Getting TherePark in the small dirt pullout on the west side of the road about a mile before town. Go upstream along the road about 100 feet and find a gully and climber's trail that mostly goes straight up it. Expect 15-20 minutes of steep hiking to get to the first band. All bands branch off to the right as you ascend.
