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

Description

A band of low quality rock; the pressure of hand jamming causes the rock to crumble. The redeeming features of this venue are proximity to a car and direct sunshine. At the risk of inciting apocryphal flame wars, this cliff is a perfect place to climb when it has recently rained/snowed. So until the star ratings of these climbs rocket into positive territory, it would be great if restless climbers would come pull off all the exfoliating rock…

Getting There

This is the first buttress one encounters hiking up the trail (Kraft Mountain Loop) that goes around the west end of Kraft Mountain, as for Atman, Sunny & Steep. It is directly above a curious large white rock in a large red hueco; and below the Tougue Mud/Rock Monster band. Descend climber’s left along a ramp to the gully/wash at the base of the rock. Or continue up to the Tongue Mud area.
