jdmorehouseCold Shower  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 8, 2016


Up Juniper Canyon, down Oak Creek. Both were wet. The notch was a waterfall. I got soaked. Oak Creek was a running stream with many pools of water cascading down from one to the other. Wet slabs were found throughout.

Heat made the climb up quite a toil. Thankful and happy to tick this one off the list. Epic hike!

Up Oak Creek again, this time it was a bushwhack, as all the grapevines and assorted brush are growing strong and full!

Some snow and ice near the summit on the shaded sides, but not enough to be an obstacle. Extremely windy conditions.

A little rain on the summit. The notch near the top of Juniper Canyon was fun, as well as the third class crack to get up to the summit. Some misdirection by some members of our party put us still up in the boulders and brush after dark, so getting out to the flats was tricky.

Went Oak Creek. Saw a bunch of Big Horns on the up after scrambling on dry falls. Amazing to look over into.

Great summit. Kicking through the brush in the canyon gets a little old but the rest of the hike was beautiful - lots of waterfalls from snowmelt too.

Date Climbed: Feb 4, 2004


I've been to the 6924' peak at various times, by the cut-over from Juniper Canyon (en route to Rainbow Peak, 6810'), by the standard Oak Creek approach, and by the route from the limestone ridge to the west (the old DPS approach, but started in Lovell Canyon -- very long!). The Juniper route involves some class4, others are class 2 slogs.

Josh led all the 5.11+ and harder and I led most of the other stuff. He redpointed everything below rainbow ledge, and onsighted everything after it. I had to hang a handful of times at cruxes. 16 hours car to car.

highiceoriginal wall route  Sucess!
my first wall ever and a big bite to chew because I also led and hauled every pitch. we had someone drop us off so we could take our time on it and not get a parking citation. we were new to walls and my partner was just in her first year of climbing. we ran outta water and the descent was not correct so the epic started when we topped out. trip ended up taking two days longer than expected and got out just an hour before our friend was going to call a rescue. I lost about 13 lbs in body weight, mostly water loss!

I have done it many times. It is one of my favorite hikes in Red Rock Canyon. I like it best in springtime when there is lots of water flowing through the canyon from the snowmelt. The slideshow from this route is here:

With Stein Lundby ropegunning most of the way. We hauled and bivied on Rainbow Ledge....hmmmm bivying was fun but probably not worth the effort. This climb could easily be done in a day. 10 pitches: Rainbow Country P1, link P4+P5, P6+P7, P13+P14. Stein onsighted everything except the 12b. I followed dutifully, Frenching only the 11d on P3 and the 12b on P14. No aiders or jumars needed. Suggest 2x cams to #1. Fun fun fun!!
