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


The first pitch is a hidden gem of technical crack climbing. After the first pitch, the angle kicks back and becomes more moderate on generally good rock. It makes for a fun adventure and a great cap to any day in sandstone canyon.

P1 5.11b 140 ft A V3 boulder problem protected by 2 bomber knifeblades leads to a bouldery and varied crack. Stop at a stance right where the the crack tops out or continue up the easy face to a small ledge about 60 ft up. 

P2 5.6 150 ft Easy face and crack leads up then left to the base of a massive, slabby left facing corner. 

P3 5.8 100 ft Straight up the thin slabby corner, belay on a ledge right below the massive roof. 

P4 5.4 200 ft Escape to the right and stretch your rope on easy slab. 

P5 Low 5th Continue up the ridge until you feel comfortable putting the rope away.

Descent- Scramble up and right, aiming for the large tower shaped summit. Cut right down the scramblers gully at the base of the tower. 3/4th class slabs lead you back tot the wash.


This climb is on the very far climbers right end of the gecko wall. The first pitch will become visible as you hike up the wash. For the best access, continue pretty far up the wash and cut up via path of least resistance to the bench at the base of the route.
