Description

Psycho Rocks is a steep cliff section right off of the Red Lady Lift, in the woods behind Uley's Cabin. It is a fun way to add one more technical section at the bottom of the mountain. It has small cliffs and chutes, and even a couple of pillow lines when the snow is good. To access Psycho Rocks, take Silvanite through the flats, then find the traverse through the trees before Silvanite starts going down again. If coming from Red Lady, take speed into the traverse directly below Uley's Cabin and follow the road to the top of Psycho Rocks. Psycho Rocks dumps you out in a mogul section below the Red Lady Lift.
