Sawtooths/Redfish Lake Lodge
For half day trips, the Redfish Boulder is conveniently located a short walk from Redfish Lake Lodge. The Boulder has a number of top rope routes ranging from 5.easy to very difficult.
Our full day intro rock climb is a total mountain experience. The Super Slabs are located behind Redfish Lake and are accessed via a ten-minute boat shuttle and a short hike (about an hour) up glacially-sculpted Redfish Canyon. The Slabs offer easy to moderate rock climbing on clean granite in a spectacular setting. Routes range from single to multi-pitch and no previous climbing experience is necessary. The multi-pitch climbs that go to the Super Slabs summit are about 1000’ feet long and typically take 2-4 hours to climb. From the summit the descent is a non-technical hike down a steep trail with a few loose sections. The Slabs are also a great tune-up for bigger routes in the range, such as those on the Elephants Perch and Finger of Fate. And you couldn’t ask for a more scenic backdrop!
