One of my favorite hikes at Red Rock Canyon so far!  Sucess!

This trail was my cup of tea and the summit was a 3-tiered plate of goodies to go with it! Stunning views! I didn't want to leave. Trail is very vague as most of this hike is climbing rocks. But you can't get lost! We pretty much made our own path. ❤

White Rock Peak  Sucess!

Up from WRS Peak. Tried to go down the east gully, not sure if I went the right way. Top of the gully was a battle through THICK brush. Should have worn pants... picked up the cairns down lower and it wasn’t as bad.

Up one way, down another  Sucess!

Up along the ridge, down through a deep, south facing gully. Class 3 with some Class 4, especially if you get off route.

Via SE gully  Sucess!

Never found any use trail leading to the gully, but getting in was easy enough. Gully itself was very similar to First Creek Canyon, a battle all the way up. Route is well-cairned near the top where it matters. Descended the way we came. It snowed on us, great day.

great rock  Sucess!

2nd time in the area this year, did Tunnel Vision in the spring, and in the fall Purblind Pillar. Both are lovely routes.

West gully bushwhack  Sucess!

Fun scramble, but with a lot of brush in the ascent gully. Straightforward route with cairns.

Traversed over from White Rock Spring Peak  Sucess!

did this hike solo - the ridge traverse from the north wasn't bad; however, the descent down into Willow Springs canyon was a little hairy - especially the second half after I lost the cairned route and the temperature was on the rise. It was good that I had a rope and plenty of water. It was unfortunate that I absolutely "shredded" the seat of my pants while coming down.

Spot the cairn  Sucess!

A good route finding scramble. Went up trailhead along Rocky Gap near Willow Springs parking lot. Plenty of cairns to keep you going and at least 2 fairly tall chimneys.

Not sure  Sucess!

Been to the top 1 time, not sure the route, but it was hairy. Lots of bush wacking and route finding.

Tunnel Vision  Sucess!

I don't think I have any desire to do this route again. The descent wasn't pleasant either.

Via Tunnel Vision  Sucess!

Definitely was NOT a 15 minute descent hahaha. Props to RPC for the beta photos of the way back to the car.

at least 7 different routes  Sucess!

Man, there are a lot of "non-tech" ways up, though some may involve class 5 and rotten, crumbly ss.

Via the West Side  Sucess!

One of the shortest and easiest scrambles in Red Rocks. No crowds.
A few photos: White Rock via West Chute

Hi, I saw you mentioned on here somewhere that you climbed Sandy Hole.
Where did you fine the beta? I can't find anything other than the short
squib in the red book. Thanks.
