|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
This small collection of climbs face east, they receive sun early in the day.
Some of these climbs (especially Dog Police) are quite well protected from the usual down canyon winds.
I am almost positive that if you head out here you will have the place to yourself, it is a bit of a walk, some of the rock is suspect, but Dog Police at least is well worth the work if you want to try something well off the beaten path.
Hike in as normal for Pine Creek, just past the home site cut across the creek (just like heading to Juniper) just before heading up the hill (still heading towards Juniper) the trail forks, go left. You will see The Pink Corner up above you to the left/south. Pick a trail (we looked and could not find a well defined one) and head up towards the crag, we mainly followed sheep trails.
Took a little under an hour from the car to the crag.

This is a great route!!!I am sure it would see lots of traffic if it were a little easier to get to, or surrounded by lots of other great climbs.There is a little bit of everything, perfect hands, wide fingers, fingers, really thin fingers, few face moves, couple slopers, it has it all.Almost all of it is on great rock, a tiny bit sandy in places but in all really very good and solid....[more] Browse More Classics in NV
