Description

Added by Trevor Cox

Kraft Boulders is an easy access, incredibly high quality sandstone bouldering area just minutes from the parking lot! Hundreds of problems ranging from V0 to V10, and a beautiful landscape to boot. 

Drive through Calico Basin near Red Rock Canyon Conservatory Area, and park at the end of the road. (The parking lot is pinpointed above) 

Once you're out of your car, you'll see the Cube. It's a 25 foot boulder, with both easy and extremely difficult climbs on it. Head toward the Cube (toward the hills), and after a three minute jaunt, you'll arrive at the Kraft Boulders.

I recommend checking out the Plumber's Crack, Potato Chip, and The Cube boulder. 

This is some of the highest quality sandstone you'll ever touch, so enjoy it! Plan to spend anywhere from 2 to 5 hours here, and you still will have only just scratched the surface.
