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


The Blood Wall is a large cliff of dark red rock tucked in on the northern side of the western ridge of Cactus Flower Tower. With its northern exposure, this area is best suited for warmer conditions. Although the approach represents some exercise, there are some routes here with truly excellent rock.

Getting There 

Hike up the Oak Creek Trail, passing the Solar Slab, until the trail drops into the streambed. Continue a short distance until the left (southern) side of the canyon is dominated by a wide slab capped by a large arch. Third class approaches can be made on either side of the arch. Probably the easiest approach involves walking almost all the way to the fork in the canyon, then following slabs up and back left to the wall. This route is generally class 2 and avoids most of the bushwhacking.

This striking route lies high on the blood wall and provides great views of the eagle wall, black orpheus, and solar slab. The rock is superb, position spectacular, and the climbing fun. Protection is plentiful but the pitches are long. P1: 5.11a/b The route starts in a bomb bay Chimney. Climb the chimney and pull the lip of a small roof and follow the crack through the mixture of hands, fingers, offwidth and face moves to gain the easier OW/Squeeze. Continue up the widening chimney until ab...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
