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

Description 

This inaccesible area rises tall above Icebox Canyon. There are only a handful of routes here and most are difficult and serious adventurous undertakings. The approach is no walk in the park-- it requires 4th and 5th class climbing. The towers area is up and west of Necromancer. Despite its difficult approach, the lines look clean and elegant from the valley floor.

Getting There 

Approach as Necromancer and then scramble/climb up the gully to the right of Necromancer wall.

Climbing Season

For the Icebox Canyon area.
