Comments: If you use X Man as a rap route with a single 60 meter rope, recommended, be sure to lay your rope toward the right on the first rap to insure you spot the next rappel station. The bolts are hard to see and partially hidden below a bulge and it would be easy to miss them and rap off the rope. Other cool trad routes exist left and right of X Man. Route descriptions can be found in the caption to the photo of Redgarden Wall.

Comments: The locals have established three trad routes on Redgarden Wall. Starting left of X Man at the lowest portion of the wall is Recon, 5.6, 180'. Climb a block leaning against the face 20', continue up and pass a block on the right side, proceed up and slightly right until you reach an upper balcony and a corner, about 130'. Second pitch follows the corner, swallows pro and can be used for a first trad lead.

Right of X Man is Chutes and Ladders, 5.7 about 150'. Start by climbing an obvious 70' con... more >>

Comments: In November '14 Jake and I managed the route in good form. On the second pitch, about 10' above the anchors, there is a loose ledge/block. It groaned when I pulled on it. To the left below X-Man is a large block leaning against the face, the start of Recon - 5.6, 180' in two pitches. To the right of X-Man is an obvious project line, 5.12?. Then another 30 foot right is Chutes and Ladders - 5.7, 150'. Start at an obvious 70' layback crack covered in lichen to a cave and two exit cracks. Lots of n... more >>

Comments: You can also start a little to the left, follow the pro, pass the chains to gain a fine 25 foot, 5.9 flared crack that ends at a nice ledge. There may be an old bolt on the ledge, caution advised. You can 'Raccoon' off the ledge to the right.

Comments: Great day climbing in "The Park". Sunny and warm with an unbeatable sunset. Managed 5.9 in poor style to celebrate my bd. Met new climber friends.

Comments: There are several moderate trad routes on the low angled face several hundred yards upstream from the campground area, on the same side of the canyon. They start from a grove of small trees.

I am looking for volunteers to help bolt a rap route on Redgarden Wall at the bottom of the hill.

The rap route on Redgarden Wall was installed by Karl and crew, thank you. It's pretty much in the center and the chains can be found by following either of two slots that meet in a 90. Be sure to move right... more >>

Comments: The climbing history at Luna Park undoubtedly began with the Apache's barefoot first ascents. Luna Park was a hunting camp, game was driven up the canyon. Arrowheads have been found near the bathroom. Known first ascents (the trad routes) began in 1975 with the brothers Mike and Tony Grenko. Bill King Sr. established the first topo of The Park and I helped fill in the blank areas in the mid 90's. The 1/2 inch bolts were installed by Bill and were part of a system he used to toprope many of today... more >>
