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


This wall is popular, because it has moderate routes, one 5.7 and several 10's, 11's and a 12.

Getting There 

To get to the Dog Wall, follow the trail from the parking lot, down to the rock outcropping and hang a right (east) down into the wash. Follow the wash up canyon (west) to a side canyon running north-south. Turn right (north) into the side canyon and walk approximately 70 feet. The Dog Wall will be on your right and is the first little gully you can take out of the side canyon.

Very crimpy. Crux is getting past the second bolt. Hard clip on the fourth bolt. Look for the hidden hold out right. Pumpy finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in Nevada

Gets good sun. Good for cold weather climbing.

This is a great wall, but I would HIGHLY recommend bringing a stick clip to this crag- at least three routes have first (or second bolts) in places where if they're not clipped before the climber leaves the ground, there is groundfall potential. Be careful out there.
