Shifting Sands Boulder

Nevada > Southern Nevada > Red Rock > Red Rock Bould… > Calico Basin Boulders
Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Details


A large boulder perched on a hill (in the gully below “The Fox”) with a perfect problem going up the middle of it’s uphill face.

Getting There

Approach as you would for Physical Graffiti, but go one drainage further on the trail until you are right below “The Fox”. The boulder will be visible for most of the approach. Scramble uphill for about 200 feet until you reach the boulder.
