About Great Red Book:

Description: While this area has many bold and scary trad leads, one in particular stands out from the rest and has earned itself a place among the classic routes of Red Rocks. This area is home to The Great Red Book, a two pitch, 5.8 trad line with amazing climbing and the famous lieback.

Approach: Approach as per the Black Corridor Head through it, crossing up onto the slabs on your right, then making another right and walking up to the top of the slabs. After you pass the wall on your left, another wall far uphill appears. This wall, with its incredibly massive corner system is your target. Head up and generally left, looking for the trail, eventually arriving at the base of the corner. The other routes on this wall are on the main wall to the right of the corner system.
