BETA PHOTO: The Triad
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
The Triad features three routes, Truth, Beauty and Wisdom, which are all old school Joe Herbst off-widths.
The Triad is on the North side of Cactus Flower Tower, which is directly across Oak Creek Canyon from Solar Slab. Follow the Solar Slab approach and once in the canyon head into the creekbed at the scenic spot where the Solar Slab trail skirts the pink cliff band in a shady area with boulders and trees. Cut south and up the south side of the canyon. There is a giant, left-leaning tower-shaped boulder immediately in front of the Triad, it's best to approach on the right side of this block.
