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


Stick Left is classic Red Rock at its best. Situated on beautiful chocolate varnished rock, this route has everything-perfect hands to start, cups leading to fists to a memorable lieback crux, to sustained and interesting climbing above. Pro is excellent the whole way, the only possible down side to this route is the rope eating pull from the bolted anchor. Worth the hike and then some.


Upon entering the Stick gully, there is an obvious huge roof on the left, about 3/4 of the way up. Across from this is an attractive steep fist crack going through a bulge. About ten minutes hike up the gully you will find the routes; try to follow cairns and be respectful of the recently burned flora and very crispy soil.


Double up on cams, 3 #3 camalot or equiv, a couple of bigger pieces for the faint of heart.

Hell Yea Bro! I hesitate to say it but the Stick Gully is SICK! Both climbs are awesome! It's actually a peaceful hike back there too if you take your time and meander through and around all the boulders. We walked up on a huge herd of fully grown male bighorns. Rock quality = awesome. Climbing = awesome, from the ground to the anchor!

Not sure that pitch length is 140' as stated above. Handren guide calls it 100'. We were able to rap off with a single 70m rope with rope to spare. Fun line!

We were able to rap off with a single 60 meter trango rope. Fantastic route!
