Access Issue: Fragile Sandstone: Don't Climb Wet Rock Details
Kelly Canyon is a sandstone climbing area and the rock is very fragile when wet. Be aware of recent weather and ask a local if you are unsure of conditions. Do not climb for at least a day following rainfall. Do not climb on rock that is visibly moist or seeping.
Locate the pretty vertical face with two prominent "X"-forming seams in the middle. Begin at left, with a vertical row of pockets. Technical moves lead up and right across the X to reach good holds and an easy mantel. Beware of dirty holds on the top.
