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

Description

Lizard Locks is a strikingly beautiful, thin, splitter crack in hard sandstone on the northern end of The Monument wall. Start climbing to the left of the crack through easy and blocky terrain to reach the base of the business. Place bomber protection and move upwards taking any opportunity to rest before the real fight begins. As the wall steepens so too does the crack thin out. Move through a thin section to a good hand jam pod. From here your creative use of the features provided will bring you to a big fat jug at the anchors. Proud send, my friend.

Protection

Double cams from thin to finger size.

Fantastic climb, mostly .3-.75 camaalots, single to 3 camalot.

FYI, anchor on this one could definitely use some improving. Currently it consists of a fixed stopper, a rusty old bolt with matching rusty hanger, & a star dryvin bolt. Nov 23, 2014

Not really sure what the grade goes at but it ain't no easy 5.11. This thing is hard. On the up side though, I was happy to see new anchor bolts when I finally did get to the top. Feb 8, 2016

This climb is really rad the end for me was cool face moves because the crack was too thin for my fingers some .2 and some blue alien/green c3 would be good for the end. Nov 28, 2017
