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


This route is located on the far left side of the Illusion Crags, about 15 feet right of French Bulges in a prominent right facing corner that features three roofs. The route starts on a small belay ledge at a yucca, just below some bushes. Ascend the corner, working some cracks on the left side and then pull the roofs. Very fun.

There is a two bolt anchor on the ledge above the third roof. You can rappel off the route, preferably with a single 70 meter rope - just watch your ends! Also watch out when you pull your rope, there is a high potential for snagging it in a crack.

There is also a very easy walk off, immediately to the climber's left (south) of the bolted anchor on the top-out ledge. Follow cairns down and traversing southward into the gulley. This gulley returns you to the base of the route.
