Redstein Crag

This collection of mostly sport climbs is located in Redstone. Park as for the River Boulders, but walk up a steep trail up the hillside to the west toward the obvious cliffs. There are a couple of easy slabs, along with many steeper climbs. All told there are about 100 routes here, from 5.8 to 5.14c, with many in the 5.11 to 5.13 range. The rock is the same stuff the boulders are made of, though the climbing is quite a bit more varied. Expect about 20-50 minutes on the steep uphill approach, depending on which crag you are going to.

Friends & Family Slab

The Friends & Family Wall, on the lower portion of the crag, is home to 9 pitches from 5.8 to 5.10+. The routes are about 70 feet long, and the hang is excellent, with a nice, flat base, and stunning views of the Crystal River Valley. The routes are characterized by jugs down low leading to techy slab climbing above.
