RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


On the north summit of Sandstone Mt, on the east flank, is a tall, narrow wall, split by a huge chimney, that sits between two distinct gullies. To descend go to the summit and work your way down to the east on the main ridge which is just left of the two big gullies.

Getting There 

Get permission to park at Bonnie Springs, go north from the dirt parking lot, walk up washes on burrow/horse trails and over a small rise to the cliff. Or cross country from the highway through the desert on BLM land between Bonnie Springs and Spring Mt Ranch.
