The Case Face Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Case Face
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
This crag is conveniently easy to get to from the Ragged Edges Area
, and hosts several moderate lines of good quality. Protection is mostly mixed.
Approach as for Ragged Edges Area
. I like to park at the first parking area, and then follow the main trail until an obvious right turn by a large boulder brings you closer to the cliff. From Ragged Edges
, walk north along the base of the cliff and follow the best trail you can find that continues uphill and right. Soon you will arrive at a nice, large ledge at the base of the Case Face.

I haven't been on this yet, so probably somebody else could write a better description. This is the most obvious crack on the face, located on the far right. Route goes up a wide section through a roof, then continues on at a lower angle to the same bolted anchor as Head Case.The only other thing I'm going to say is . . .
