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


Several easy trad climbs are found on the walls that make up the creature feature, and signs of prior activity. There are other climbs on the surrounding walls near the waterfall, some of unknown origin. Seems to be alot of relic pins in/around the vincinity of the waterfall. Rock has some bullet stone in places flakey in others.

Getting There 

Follow the main trail from the icebox pullout all the way toward the waterfall where the main hiking trail ends. At this point you could head right into the next drainage toward buffalo wall, the wall is on the left (N. E. facing) before the first fixed line.

I would note that since I published this area someone has tampered with the fixed lines for the buffalo wall approach.(which we used for descent). They tied one up completely at the anchor and tossed or pulled the small one up so it couldnt be reached by hikers it appears. Not sure what their tryin to do here but I put them back to normal for now. I wouldnt bank on them being there in the future.
