Climbing Geometric Progression at the Pier.
|Climbing in Red Rocks after heavy rain can permanently damage the rock! MORE INFO >>>|
Shady and sheltered, the Pier makes a decent one-time destination if you are trying to escape either the sun or the wind. It seems lightly traveled and lacks the ogling crowds of the crags near the first two pull-outs. The stone is attractive and solid. The routes are mostly difficult (5.11 and up) and range from 10 to 25 meters in height.
From the Sandstone Quarry parking lot, head back out on the street a few meters, walking less than a minute back towards the second pullout- a trail will depart from the road and take you towards the main red rock enscarpement. follow this for a few hundred meters at most, where-upon a long 'pier' or 'dock' or rock will become apparent at ground level. This is the crag. All climbs are approached via the downward sloping trail at the left side of this long rock formation.
