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


This is a great route that you have to climb. Pretty stout. Fun crack climbing down low, tricky crux mid-way up, follow the corner to a roof and a few psychological moves on to the face above. Take the faint crack right and up to the top of the cliff.


This route is 50-100 feet to the right of Hidden Falls. Desend by rapping from a giant, slung chicken head or as per the standard Lower Tier descent.


Standard rack. Build your own anchor.

Looking at the cliff is a leftward slanting chimney that goes at about 5.2. It shares the same start as this route. The hardest part is at the bottom. This chimney is a pretty manageable downclimb unroped and also provides easy acess for potential top-roping.
