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


The East Face of Rainbow Mountain is home to some nice climbs and wide cracks that are scattered along its base to the south of the height of land in the center of the mountain. A semi-adventurous craging area that so far has received only what seems like sporadic visits, despite the good quality of most routes.

Getting There 

Approach from Oak Creek, hiking the main trail for a while, then heading right (North) just before it drops down into a deep red sandy portion. Head up the hillside, crossing a band of pink rock and aiming towards the base of the mountain directly above a wide talus/scree drainage. Aprox 1 hour.
