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


The Owls Den is a relatively new wall up and left of Red Springs gully. The routes are tall and the climbing is thin and delicate. Bring a 70m rope, for safety. A 60 will barely make some of the routes but to be sure bring a longer rope. The climbing is new so the holds can be fragile. Otherwise the routes are very nice.

Getting There 

The Owls Den is directly below the Strategic Arms Crag or what some refer to as the Lost Wall. It is up Red Springs gully. After Ash Springs meadow continue up the obvious gully on hikers left. The large wall is up and left. It is shady all day except morning sun.

Climb the entire wall! Climb a tricky thin dihedral up to a steep and reachy bulge to gain access to the head wall then contiue all the way up. Continue up the face until it narrows to a steep pillar. Climb the arete of the pillar to an anchor. Beware on the descent, have the appropriate rope length....[more]   Browse More Classics in Nevada

After hearing about this new wall I was excited to explore new routes going up in my local area. After doing two of the routes I was disappointed that anyone would bolt a wall that had such crap rock. I do have to thank the developers for putting up new chain anchors on the old right facing dihedral 5.12 tips crack.
