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

Description 

A nice, secluded feeling setting, even though you're not far from the cars on the loop road. The rock quality is generally great. David, thank you for the amazing music!

Getting There 

Follow directions to the Sugar Baby boulder using Tom Moulin's excellent guide book. From there, Space Oddity is the huge boulder, 50 ft. east of the Sugar Baby.

Jonah got the f.a. to the stand start, then his girlfriend Erika swooped in and scooped him on the f.a. of the much better sit start ha ha!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Nevada
