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


Get Rad follows the awesome right-leaning splitter wide crack at the Rad cliff. Inside the crack you will discover quality clean cut stone with very few features. Squeeze climb for about 75' before the crack forces you to exit onto slightly easier terrain. Then continue up the great hand crack/flare of Chamber of Secrets to finish. This is an adventurous crack climb with a little something for everyone.


The massive right leaning-splitter wide crack directly to the left of The Chamber of Secrets.

From belay tree, hike climbers left about 10' to gain rappel tree. 70m rap


BD #2 through #6, double 3&4 Big Bros or run out.

Ha, Larry DeAngelo had been wanting to do that for years. We weren't sure if it would go and be fully gnarly or be a hike. Sounds like it wasnt too bad- nice job!
