About Black Corridor:

Description: Possibly the most crowded and popular sport climbing area in Red Rocks, the Corrirdor is a shady moderate area full of great routes and people.

Approach: Head down the trail, making your second left and following it across toward some rocky formations. You'll go up and over some bushy slabs, then drop into some sand. From here, make a sharp right and go up the break in the cliffs. Some pools form seasonally, if they are there, staying right is probably quicker, but staying left is easier. Climb up a small (6') wall on your left, then go straight for the cliff in front of you, crossing over a small rocky outcrop. Make a right and walk along the right edge of this gully you are now in for about 20', then duck under the tree on your left and you have arrived.
