Hey folks, does anyone know of good solid sandstone cracks in Red
Rocks?
I'm not looking for multi-pitch, just simple old craggin' cracks
similar to Injun Creek and Wall Street.

Thanks.

The Fox at Calico Basin is really nice.

Also, Atman in Calico Basin is super fun (5.10) and has an Indian Creek feel
to it, although the size changes from thin, to hands, to fists, to "oh God,
nooooooo"

And if you're burly like Amanda, Ying Yang was fun....

Thanks for the info.  I've always passed over the Calico Basin in the
past.... I'll be sure to check that out.  I enjoyed the website as
well

Thanks again,
Chris

Crysler Crack in Calico is interesting if you like wide.

Straight Shooter in Pine Creek is a 5.9 classic single pitch.

Out of Control also in Pine Creek will get your attention. Not a nice parallel
crack but very worthy.

Left Out is pretty cracky and steep. Check out the water polished The Threat
while you're in the area.

Of course, there's always Desert Gold for the lover's of 13- horizontal cracks!

Concur on the Fox. RR classic.
