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


50' right of Ragged Edges. Just right of a line with a couple bolts on it.

Boulder up some whitish rock, (crux no pro), then continue up fun climbing to a very shallow left-facing flake/corner system.

Continue to the top and walk off.


Standard Rack.

The first 30-50 ft of this climb can be confusing.You start by traversing right, then when you reach the "horizontals" you want to head back left-just alittle- and climb up into a "dished out" area. Then traverse up and right alittle to reach the aforementioned shallow, left facing corner/flake thingy. Once there it's pretty much straight up.This climb is a little runout. Apr 13, 2005

The difficulty may be dependent on where you start. I started on the left side of the black streak (there is chalk on the right side also) and found it not too bad. I got protection at approx. the 10 and 15 foot level, then encountered a 20-foot runout. After that, there are many opportunities to place small nuts and cams, some of which are quite shallow and probably would not hold a big fall. Therefore, it is a good idea to place many pieces and not skip any solid looking ones. Apr 1, 2007

This line is not at all obvious from the ground but the climbing is awesome once you get on it. May 3, 2007

tough onsight- i was wandering back and forth in the horizontals trying to figure this one out- its definitely a path of least resistance sort of thing, but its not always obvious until you gain the shallow left facing dihedrals about 30-40' up. after that, its straight up to the big ledge.

edit: years later i returned to this. the gear is much more plentiful than I remember, not even sure i'd give it a PG13 rating. A #3 off the deck, then a #1, then two or three really good pieces for the traverse, then more really good gear up the head wall. There's one marginal piece up high, but good gear below and above take the edge off it. Bring your stopper skills- most of the good stuff is passive on this one. Save some hand size stuff for the anchor. May 17, 2009

This would probably be difficult without chalk leading the way, but it truly is pretty straight forward and protectable. Aim for the 'gun sight' crack weakness up high just below the belly ledge. Mar 15, 2013
