Red Dead Redemption II: All Rock Carvings Locations Guide

So, Arthur, you want to find the locations of all Rock Carvings in Red Dead Redemption 2? No worries cowboy, because if you follow our Red Dead Redemption II Rock Carvings Locations Guide below, you will be able to find them faster than you can pull the trigger.

Now, that you know how to activate the associated Stranger Mission, named Geology for Beginners, it’s time to mount your horse and start riding following the locations on our map below.

If you did not read the details outlined in our Geology for Beginners walkthrough, make sure you do that; otherwise, you won’t be able to mail all the coordinates to Francis Sinclair.

Assuming you are ready to find these strange collectibles, here are several tips to help you move faster. If you already unlocked the Fast Travel option, use it whenever you can.

Stick to the order on our RDR2 Rock Carvings locations map because it follows the same order as our text guide.

A good idea is to fully explore each area because in Red Dead Redemption 2 there are multiple collectibles you can find. Some of them (such as Chests and Lock Boxes) are very well hidden, while others (Dreamcatchers) will unlock unique rewards. Combine our guides and use each map we have created for you.

Keep in mind that there is no need to return to the Post Office after each Rock Carving you discover. The coordinates will be stored in your journal and you can mail them all at once.

When you do that, fast forward the in-game time (sleep) by at least 24 hours to receive a letter from Francis Sinclair and all other associated rewards.

Travel to his house to find out the ending of the mission and don’t forget to take the Old Brass Compass from the table inside the house. You need this item to craft the Raven Claw Talisman.

Finally, if by any chance you have questions regarding these Red Dead Redemption 2 collectibles, post them in the comments section below, or on our social media pages (FacebookTwitterInstagram).

1 – Horseshoe Overlook Rock Carving

South-west from Horseshoe Overlook is the first Red Dead Redemption 2 Rock Carving marked on our map. Look for it on the mountain wall close to the burned village. It is several steps south-west from the village that was destroyed by flames.

The Rock Carving near Elysian Pool is probably the easiest to find. Look for the wooden bridge over the small river, and right in front of you, on the right side of the road is the rock face. In the picture below, you can see Arthur aiming it.

While you are in the area, don’t forget to loot the hidden lockbox under the log bridge (marked with 33 in our Red Dead Redemption 2 Chests & Lockboxes Locations Guide).

The rock ledge is facing the river and the train bridge mentioned above. Remember this location, because the path above the Rock Carving will lead you to the High Stakes Treasure and to 3 Gold Bars.
