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


(From the Handren guide book): this crag sits low on the right side of the gully that slants up to the east underr the Great Red Book. It is a very shady wall that almost never gets any sun. There is some Fragile and sandy rock here, but also a few good routes.

Getting There 

Approach the same as the black corridor but take the trail to the right after the pools. It is the first bolted wall on your right.

From this stance work your left hand onto a heinous sloper above the lip and pounce up and right to a big flat ledge. Finish out the bullet slab. A really fun, punchy little route.
