Description

The Owls Den is a relatively new wall up and left of Red Springs gully. The routes are tall and the climbing is thin and delicate. Bring a 70m rope, for safety. A 60 will barely make some of the routes but to be sure bring a longer rope. The climbing is new so the holds can be fragile. Otherwise the routes are very nice.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

The Owls Den is directly below the Strategic Arms Crag or what some refer to as the Lost Wall. It is up Red Springs gully. After Ash Springs meadow continue up the obvious gully on hikers left. The large wall is up and left. It is shady all day except morning sun.

After hearing about this new wall I was excited to explore new routes going up in my local area. After doing two of the routes I was disappointed that anyone would bolt a wall that had such crap rock. I do have to thank the developers for putting up new chain anchors on the old right facing dihedral 5.12 tips crack. Aug 30, 2016
