Starting up the Left Canola Crack

Climbing in Red Rocks after heavy rain can permanently damage the rock! MORE INFO >>>


What's the next best thing after olive oil? At the very top of the Olive Oil descent gully, there are two clean, aesthetic cracks in the darkly varnished face. Both are in the 5.7 to 5.8 range.


As you begin the descent from Olive Oil, these cracks are immediately to your right, at the top of the gully.

okay, but not as good as the right hand crack. i'd call it 5.8.
