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.

Getting There 

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.

Head Case 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  Nevada : Red Rock : ... : The Case Face
This route is located in the middle of the Case Face and climbs through the white lower half of the cliff up into dark varnish. Mostly good face climbing, protected by nuts and cams in the varnish where possible, bolts where not. The beginning is a little weird, with awkward moves to get to the first bolt. Since the protection looked pretty marginal from the ground, we toproped this climb by first climbing Space Case, then doing a second pitch up and right to get to the Head Case anchors.
