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

Description

Black Track is the obvious right leaning crack that goes up the middle of Hidden Falls Wall. The climb is well protected but is a bit off-width in places and can be a little clumsy. Otherwise, the climb is an excellent workout on hand and fist crack. When done, rappel the route with one rope. A short second pitch with two bolts on the face (5.11c) has also been done.

Protection

A few medium to large nuts plus a full rack of cams up to 4 inches

An awesome crack climb for Red Rock! There are a few awkward spots, but overall the route felt pretty mellow because it is well protected. A great warm-up climb for Left Out! Apr 7, 2006

Bring your old hexes -- they work as well or better than those newfangled cams on this route. Mar 22, 2009

This is a good short crack. Steep, with good jams. Not your basic RR jug haul next to a crack--you actually have to jam it. Apr 27, 2012

Stellar route! This climb has a little bit of everything with easy gear placements. The crack is superb. Anchors at the top are bomber and look like they have brand new rap rings on them. Jul 17, 2013
If you do the .11c extension, be aware that there is no anchor, at least not that I could find. There is an old 1/4" stud with no hanger but that's it. I reversed the mantle and jumped off, then down-aided the two closely-spaced draws. Dec 1, 2014

One of my most rewarding leads at red rock! Also it's certainly more than 60 feet. I used most of a 70m to get back to the ground. Mar 27, 2016

An area classic. Somewhat stout for a 5.9. This route combined with Ragged Edges makes for a terrific day of trad climbing. Jul 17, 2018
