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


This unique crack offers something for the offwidth enthusiast or any individual looking for something different. Start at the very back of the crack, and bury your feet up high. Do a sit up and shuffle out the roof. Pull the lip with a fun pivot and the help from a few edges. Although not technically all that difficult, it is quite an enjoyable climb. Additionally, there are probably numerous ways to climb this.

This reminds me of a similar (but easier) sandstone version of Vedauwoo's Desiderata V5. The name is a reference to that.


Sitting near the wash below Alternative Crag is a large boulder split wonderfully by a tapering offwidth crack.

Looks like a fun problem. Is this at the base of the hillside by the spring or up near the crag itself? Apr 3, 2014

It's by the base of the hillside near the spring. Ground level more or less. In the bouldering guide the area is known as the Ash Creek Spring boulders. Apr 4, 2014
