Shelf Ridge Rock Climbing
Michael Kaffel and Cori Tight on 'Red Wind'.
Shelf Ridge features several TR's, a handful of trad lines, and one bolted route. None of the climbs have their own anchors so come prepared to sling objects and extend your master point.
The Fox Canyon area forms the western boundary while Couch Rock marks the easternmost point.
Park at the top of Signal Street and hike up Shelf Road. Take Fox Canyon trail, on your left. After hiking uphill for about a mile, stay right at a fork (marked by a sign post). After a short ways, stay right at another fork (again marked). Continue for about another half mile. The Red Wind wall will be to your right, just off the trail.
