Heel Hooks are good on Pork Chop Sandwiches

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


There are a number of good boulders that can be reached from the Oak Creek trailhead. Some are found within the canyon itself, and there are some fantastic problems along the East-facing hillside between Oak Creek Canyon and Juniper Canyon.

Getting There 

Park at the Oak Creek trailhead and take the main trail towards the canyon. After exactly 1 mile there is a trail intersection that heads off towards the right; take this turn for the problems outside of the canyon, or keep heading up into the canyon for the problems there.

For the boulders along the hillside: after breaking off from the main Oak Creek trail, continue heading North for 1/4 of a mile or so until a trail branches off to the left, leading straight to the large Bloodline boulder. From here, faint trails can be found to access the rest of the boulders.

Starting with the two crimps, climb the arete to the top. This boulder gets beat by the sun all day so it's recommended to hit it early morning while the rock is still cool. Climbing this thing on a hot day can feel impossible. Wait for the good temps....[more]   Browse More Classics in Nevada
