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


Smile at the tourists and picnic-ers as you criggity crush them bouldars. A couple nice boulders here which see less traffic than the Kraft boulders. The Calico sport climbs can be approached from here too if you're too poor/cheap to pay the access fee for the "scenic loop".

Getting There 

Approach as if for the Kraft mountain boulders, but pull into the Red Spring picnic area parking lot at the bend in the road. Hike up the hill, leftish, towards the boulders.

Cave problem, all overhang and good quality rock once passed the jugs. Since your in a cave you have shade through out the day, but the sun hits the last few holds on the cave during midday. Never sees action since its a new route, you will however see trad climbers above you, which is always a plus. Hiker below you but never stray from the trail.
