Clay bustin' a move on The Fox

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

Description 

The Fox is an awesome Red Rocks crack pitch.


Getting There 

This classic crack is located on a shady crag 200 yards right of Cannibal Crag. Park at the same place and follow a well worn trail which skirts the cliffs to the right of Cannibal Crag. The Fox is a beautiful corner several hundred feet above the desert floor. It's right facing, so you can't quite see it from the ground until you walk just past it. Scramble straight up an easy chute to a flat area at the base of the climb.

This is a very clean right facing corner a few hundred feet above the desert floor. It is a fantastic pitch on perfect desert varnish.Start directly below the dihedral and follow discontinuous holds and finger locks 20' up to the dihedral proper. From here, climb the nice jam crack, gradually widening from thin hands to an offwidth section about 70' up the corner. A #4 camalot is mandatory for this section, two would be nice. Bring a #5 if you have one. After a few secure wide c...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
