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


This sunny cliff see relative little activity. Since the addition of anchors on all but one route it is a nice alternative crag for winter climbing when all the old standbys are crowded. Some of the top outs are a bit dicey but it is easy to walk to the top and set up a top rope.

Getting There 

From the sandstone quarry parking lot take the trail into the drainage and cut up uphill right past the large boulder. Follow the ridge past the Sonic Youth cliff. The Numbers crag is the 40' cliff just past and below Broast and Toast.

This little gem starts with a long jump to the opening holds (if you're short). The crux section is a bit hard to decipher at first as most of the holds are slopers. A little feeling around will eventually uncover two small edges. The second crux comes at the top and also involves large white slopers. Unfortunately there are no edges to find up here. Try to hang on long enough to get the anchors clipped....[more]   Browse More Classics in Nevada
