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


If you continue uphill to the left (south) from the base of Ginger Cracks, you will reach a vague buttress going straight up the middle of the east face of the east peak of Rainbow Mountain. Climb the buttress and the gully above. To say more might spoil the adventure...

If you are interested in more of the flavor, there is some good history in Red Rock Odyssey
