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

Description 

This west facing cliff gets the very last sun and is great for cooler times. If hard climbing in the morning suits you, it has AM shade for the warmer months. A fairly seclued area with no crowds and long routes. The rock quality is good to very good, but expect some loose stuff as the routes are not well travelled.

Getting There 

Take "the trail of Tears" and cut to the east between the Middle and South of the three little peaks. The cliff will be facing you and it is easy to contour accross and then up to the base. It should take about 20 to 30 minutes for the approach.
