Meyer's Cracks Rock Climbing
A view from the base.
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
This somewhat isolated, east-facing crag has two routes and no fixed gear. A standard rack should suffice for both routes.
To find these two semi-remote climbs, use the trail on the west side of Kraft Mountain which passes the Yin and Yang cliff (once you attain the crest of this trail, look due North and you will see a formation that has two large huecos capped by an an overhang at the top of a gully - this is the gully that you want to be in). The trail forks obviously approximately 200 yards past Yin and Yang - choose the left option and then pursue it down and right to the wash. Cross the wash directly and there, to your left, will be the inconspicuous beginning of a gully that leads up and left. Follow the cairns in the gully, passing most major obstacles on the right side.

Does anybody have any FA beta on the thin finger crack 50 yards south of these two routes? Looks to me to be about 5.11 or so.
