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


Sandy Corridor is a quite scenic box canyon located close to the parking lot of Sandstone Quarry. It is mostly the realm of tough sport routes but it is also the home to a classic splitter off-width, Chrysler Crack.

Getting There 

Sandy Corridor is the first canyon that you'll see on your right as you head north out of the parking lot, just past the quarried blocks. The mouth of the corridor lies about 150 yards from the lot.

One hold near the second bolt looks like it may have broken, making the first crux reachy or really strenuous if you're short. Then pull onto the slab for a series of delicate and balancy moves on side pulls and under clings to gain more positive edges. Full on adventure arete climbing to yet another delicate slab move up higher, then jugs for the last 10 f...[more]   Browse More Classics in Nevada

New route on the left or north side of the corridor. It is a right slanting/traversing crack with several bolts on it. Anyone have any information on it?
