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


The Refrigerator Wall extends along the south side of the main branch of Icebox Canyon from a point just right of the Frigid Air Buttress all the way to the waterfall several hundred yards to the west. There are many good trad routes ranging from short crag exercises up to long and sustained crack climbs.

Getting There 

The approach is short and easy. Hike west on the main trail from the Icebox Canyon parking area. After a short walk, the trail drops into the streambed-- you are there.
