One Guy Two Cups Trad 5.8+
 
60
Continue right on the old road about 5 minutes past Dark Horse and the obvious Wicked dihedral, passing under/over a downed tree or two. After rounding around the corner of this shallow holler where the road starts heading downhill and away from the rock, head back up the steep hill to your left to the toe of the buttress. Just right of this point of rock is this attractive splitter fist, hand, and finger crack tucked into the dihedral. A bit licheny but great rock and jamming. Steepness:

0a

Tostitos, Chocolate, and Porn Trad 5.11b

Approximately 50 yds. to the right of Dark Horse find a varied multi-crack system that runs straight up to a small ledge just above a refrigerator-size recessed block. Above this, a crack curves to the right to eventually turn upward again and diminish in a wide dihedral. The sandy rock in first 12 ft. of the route improves markedly as you progress. Steepness:

1d

God of the Gaps Trad 5.10c
 
75
The steep, intimidating offwidth corner just left of August. Start with some mellow climbing to gain the roof, which is a bit easier than it appears. Getting into the squeeze, however, is another story... bring several large cams up to #6 Camalot. Steepness:

High Heaven Sport 5.12a

65
The widening crack splitting the face left of High Heaven. Steepness:

Did the OW / squeeze chimney line in between Evil and Under the Influence this weekend with Kenneth. Seemed to be at least 9+, but maybe not quite as hard as God of the Gaps. Having at least 2 each of #4-6 will keep you off the ground, but I think a 7-8" piece would have made it more enjoyable. Didn't see evidence of previous traffic - anyone been up this guy? If not how about Wizard's Sleeve.

Nice little 10 went in by Incognito. Too bad it's not online yet. Probably waiting for proper anchors.

any chance of this re-opening, any progress towards such? got here once 2 weeks before closure and it was already one of my favorite walls.

In addition to parking are there any other reasons for the closure of Area 6? Or is it simply a question of avoiding traffic on fragile roads and avoiding parking in the very limited space.

Got escorted out at gunpoint over the summer. This area is patrolled by the land owners who are tired of climbers...

one of my favorite walls at the red... RRGCC seems more focused on buying new land
22
Anonymous said on May 9th, 2018
I have no critique of the RRGCC, as previous anon seems to have, but I will agree that this crag is amazing. It's an entire cliff full of K.S.B. and Amarillo-style lines. Maybe one day...

There was no "closure" of Area 6. It was never open and never for sale.
