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 very beautiful trad climbing area with a wide variety of colors in the rock and an array of features as well. Dihedrals, cracks, smooth faces are all prominent here. It seems to get little sun especially after noon. Be aware of the rock art, there are numerous petroglyphs and pictographs - don't climb on them. Several routes are now off limits due to the presence of rock art. Descend these single pitch routes by walking off right.

Getting There 

Park in Willow Springs where the road turns to dirt. Follow the trail marked Petroglyph Wall Trail across the drainage. The trail takes you directly to the crag in about five minutes.

A very fun route that looks much more intimidating than it is. A little run out at the beginning. The crux is at the very top where you pull up through a short, slightly overhung, offwidth....[more]   Browse More Classics in NV

I hopped on some climb, rated 10a in the book, to the left of peaches. Had a bulgy start, then a scramble to a tree. Forgot what it was called, but it was not 10a in the slightest. Easy 5.8 or so. Had a fun start and an anchor at the top.
