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


A massive chimney visible from the parking lot above and to the east of Civilization Crag. The wall faces southwest, but the chimney has shade almost all the time.

Getting There 

Approach to Civilization Crag. Continue up through the Civ slot, and traverse east and up through a fairly obvious break. Three more minutes on flat ground straight east brings you to the wall. 15-20 minutes.
