Bryan O'Keefe on You Are.. 13b


Best cliff here, perfectly overhanging, northwest-facing wall, just north of Trophy towards Turtlehead Peak. Hides the hardest collection of routes at Red Rocks and is probably the best wall for 13s. Not a crowded area either... yet... Not the greatest warm-ups though.

Getting There 

Hike as you're headed towards The Trophy Wall but continue straight where Trophy trail heads right on Turtlehead trail. Once walls diminish, curve right down backside of cliffband til you see the sweeping overhanging wall about 70 ft tall. (This wall can also be accessed by hiking through Trophy area and down backside of cliff through a ravine -- not recommended).

one of the more exciting moves on the climb <br /> <br />Sam Cody photo

Ambushed 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ E6 6c  NV : Red Rock : ... : The Secret 13 Wall
Just right of Go a Hundred, start on big lefthand flake then up smaller sidepulls and edges to good rest before smooth midsection wall. Bouldery moves to a weird "hole" then even more difficult moves to big rest hole. Straight up decent holds to exciting slabby topout finish. Classic climb on good rock! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NV

No doubt, the BEST wall at Red Rocks for hard routes. Great on warmer days.

Do fixed draws hang from any of these climbs, or is it possible to rap down from above to hang my own?
