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


Hidden Falls Wall is a pleasant place to escape the heat of the summer, being in the shade for most of the day. It might get a sliver of sun briefly around 1pm in the summer but otherwise it remains quite cool. With six single pitch routes topping out at 100 feet, in the range of 5.9 to 5.11c, and with trad, sport and mixed, face and crack, there is a little something for everyone. Some routes can be top roped by climbing other routes. Descend by rappelling from bolt anchors.

Also known as Bigfoot Wall.

Getting There 

Take the Red Rock Loop road past the highest point to the Willow Springs turn-off. Park at the first lot which is on the left and features an outhouse. Look south for a canyon featuring a lot of black rock a couple of hundred yards from the road. The Wall is on the left. Take the Hidden Falls trail south from the lot, pass the spring with the raised walkway, pass the shady spot with the memorial bench and look up. The northwest facing tower is above you to the left and the Hidden Falls are about 200 feet further up the trail. Head left up a short climbers trail to the crag. Approach time is about ten minutes.
