Rainbow Wall

Rainbow Wall

Autumn in Red Rocks, Nevada. October 2008. Enjoy my slideshows of how to get to the top of it via the non-technical routes and things you might see along the way: Rainbow Wall via the North Fork of Oak Creek Canyon (class 3 route of 8 miles up and back with over 3000 feet of elevation gain) Rainbow Wall via South Fork of Pine Creek and Terrace Canyon; descent via Gunsight Notch Canyon with a bonus trip up Gunsight Notch Peak (8.5 mile class 3 loop with approximately 3300 feet of elevation gain). You could also descend via the Notch and Juniper Canyon. One can also scramble up Rainbow Wall via Juniper Canyon and Gunsight Notch. None of the routes mentioned above require any ropes!

Nice Depth

This gives a good perspective of the immensity of the wall.

Re: Nice Depth

Thank you John. It is also fun to be sitting on the edge of it and look down. A different perspective!

Great autumn colours and that wall looks spectacular. I know nothing about it however. What is the rock like?

Re: Wow

Thanks. The rock is good solid sandstone. I added some links to my slideshows. If you are interested you can see more of what the rock along the routes is like. Cheers!

Somewhere over the Rainbow?

The "pot of gold" must be in the leaves of the
trees! Excellent photograph, Anya!!!

Re: Somewhere over the Rainbow?

Thanks Larry. Autumn has been great in Red Rocks, but we have had some heavy winds lately that I wonder if the golden leaves have travelled with them. Hopefully not.
