West facing, short, easy, mostly bolted routes on quality rock. Quick approach, popular, good for beginning leaders.
As you approach Rock Canyon from the parking area, this will be the first rock on the right. As you are hiking you will see a water tank on your left. Red Slab is the slab on the south side of the road at the entrance to the canyon proper. Hike up and to the right for a 5 minute approach from the "old" road. Approximately 10-15 minute approach from the parking lot.
Quite possibly the best line on Red Slab, this route is an exciting lead with good, solid holds the whole way, and requires a bit of thought here and there to figure out a way past a seeming blank spot.After mildly tricky start with some small crimps or a finger jam, you quickly pass the first bolt and reach a huge jug and breathe a sigh of relief.

Red slab is okay. It's a good place to bring a big group because it's easy to set a lot of topropes.

It's nice because it's quick to get there and easy to toprope if you're bringing beginners.
there are a few anchors up top that have come loose. This wall needs some work, i will be going up early tomorrow with my baby sister to take care of the issues on the wall. it would be great if climbers could stay off red slab for the duration of the morning to allow us to do the work that is required for the safety of all the other climbers that use this wall. its up to the ones that know how to look after everyone else. thanks climbers, and safe climbing
I was over at the 5.5 Playground route and I noticed another route a few feet to the right of this route. I climbed it and it seemed like a 5.6-7 but I cant find any info. It was a fun clean climb and the last move was pretty run out making it even better! Does anyone know what this route is called?
