RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details
Holds rip off and climbs have been and will continue to be permanently damaged due to climbers not respecting this phenomenon. After a heavy storm the rock will remain wet, sometimes for several days. PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB IN RED ROCKS during or after rain. A good rule of thumb is that if the ground near your climb is at all damp (and not powdery dry sand), then do not climb. There are many alternatives (limestone, granite, basalt, and plastic) nearby. ***** HUMAN WASTE ***** Human waste is one of the major issues plaguing Red Rocks. The Las Vegas Climbers Liaison Council identified this problem years ago and has worked to provide "wag bags" free of charge in several locations (Black Velvet, First Pullout, Kraft Mtn/Bouldering, The Gallery, and The Black Corridor). These bags are designed so that you can pack your waste out - consider bringing one to be part of your kit (just like your rope and shoes and lunch) no matter where you go. Once used, please dispose of them properly (do not throw them in the toilets at the parking areas). This project was funded primarily by the American Alpine Club
DescriptionThis climb while offering fun climbing has a lot to be desired in rock quality. Start up chossy rock to a high first bolt through a cool thread in the rock. This part is easy but scary due to the rock quality. After the 1st bolt continue up to hard moves passing the second bolt and a nice rest at the bottom of large Hueco. Navigate your way past the Hanta out of the Hueco and pull some more hard moves to get to the last bolt. From there some balancy climbing gets you to the anchors.
LocationThere are now 4 bolted routes in the main part of Hidden Corridor (Not including Hidden Edge). Continue past the two new routes by about 50' past the narrow part of the canyon. This is the route closest to the entrance. To the left is "Sandy Secrets"
