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


This is a small cliff that sits at about a 5 minute walk from the Salt Factory. It houses 1 bolted route and a handful of boulder problems.

Getting There 

Approach as for the Salt Factory. Prior to walking east through the small juniper tree meadow which sits below that cliff, walk north up slabs instead, facing Turtle Head Peak. The steep overhang of the Vaya con Queso cliff will be obvious.

Climbing Season

For the Sandstone Quarry area.

You'll be climbing the beautifully tiger striped wall, right of the sharp arête, that is both concave and angular. The rock is perfect on this one. Stand start matched with a crimp rail at chest/head height in the concave and feet smearing. Move the left hand up over the roof onto a vertical crimp and begin a series of contortionist movements that have you palming out right, high stepping, body scumming and bumping through some edges. Top out directly through the looming Aron Ralston boulders. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Nevada
