Description

Most of the climbs on Ranch Hands Crag face east, which means sun...likely in the shade by mid afternoon. Some "sport-ish" routes, bring along some small size pro.

Routes range from 35' to 75' with the exception of roman hands which is 155'.

Getting There

Red springs parking area. Head west. Trail goes along the base of the hill. After about 250 meters you will see cannibal crag, continue about another 350 meters and you will reach ranch hands crag. The crag is along the base of the hill on your left side. See map, see pics. You can't miss it. Approx 10 minute approach.

You can also approach from the parking spot (assisi canyon ave dead ends into sandstone drive). Follow obvious trail which then goes along dry river bed, see crag on left side (travel heading west, crag faces east). Less than 10 min approach.
