Mystery of Red Dead Redemption 2 rock carvings revealed

The Red Dead Redemption 2 rock carvings are one of many collectibles you can trace in the Old West, and it should come as no surprise that they were carved into the sides of hills or cliff faces. Because of their potential high-altitude locations in Red Dead Redemption 2, they’re not the sort of thing you’d accidentally stumble upon, and you can walk under them completely unaware of their existence.

Helpfully, there are only 10 available, so they’re a lot less troublesome than completing your collection of 144 Red Dead Redemption 2 cigarette cards, or 30 Red Dead Redemption 2 dinosaur bones for that matter. Before you start your journey to find the Red Dead Redemption 2 rock carvings, you need to go to a cabin located northwest of Strawberry and talk to a man named Francis Sinclair there.

He will ask you to find 10 of these Red Dead Redemption 2 rock carvings and then send him their coordinates via any post office. After you send him the 10th set of coordinates, you will be able to complete this special Alien Quest by reading his invitation and then visiting him back in his cabin.

We’ll start near Strawberry for the locations of all 10 rock carvings and travel counterclockwise on the map from west to east so you should be able to collect them all in one long trip.

Red Dead Redemption rock carving 1

Location: On the southwest shore of Lake Owanjila

Probably the strangest of all the rock carvings to truly ‘pick up’, this one is located on the southwest shore of Lake Owanjila, west of Strawberry. It’s engraved on the tallest rock pile out there, but getting up close and personal, you’ll need to stand on the shore for the prompt to appear.

Red Dead Redemption 2 rock carving 2

Location: Near the summit of Mount Shann

Follow the path that takes you to the top of Mount Shann and keep following it until you’re just below the T on the map, and the path turns into a somewhat snake-like shape as it turns down the mountain. Here you will find not only some giant bones (interesting), but also a second rock carved into the rocks above the road.

Red Dead Redemption 2 rock carving 3

Location: On a cliff southwest of Horseshoe Overlook overlooking the burnt settlement of Limpany

Head to the cliff west of Limpany and head to the south end. Here you will find your third rock carving overlooking that burnt settlement buried deep in the cliff.

Red Dead Redemption 2 rock carving 4

Location: Plateau south of Moonstone Pond, where New Hanover and Ambarino meet

For that, head to the south point of Moonstone Pond, south of Grizzlies East in Ambarino. Next, head to the south-east of the lake where the ground rises. Drive to the side using the small grass path and then aim for the rocky ledges ahead.

Pass the first one and then head towards the second large ledge, but before that, go down the road on the right.

Follow the surrounding grass and you will see the pyramid-themed rock carved into the stone in front of you.

Red Dead Redemption 2 rock carving 5

Location: Near the north shore of Elysian Pool, south of Annesburg in New Hanover

Head to the north shore of Elysian Pool, to the point where there is a small bump in the water’s main lines. Head east from here and if you’re on the trail, you’ll see a rather large rock carving on the protruding cliff on your left.

Red Dead Redemption 2 rock carving 6

Location: On a rock ledge near the summit of Roanoke Valley, east of Deer Cottage, north of Annesburg

From Deer Cottage (the first N of Roanoke Valley on the map), follow the path a bit until you reach the rock face behind it. Proceed to the first level of the cliff face and the rock carving is right there, just hovering above the Deer Hut.

Red Dead Redemption 2 rock carving 7

Location: On a cliff face on a hill southwest of Bacchus Station and northeast of Fort Wallace

Follow the road northeast of Fort Wallace until you see an unmarked road that curves up a large hill.

Go there until the two stones reach the top. Pass through them and follow the path on the left.

When the road splits, go downhill – the rock carving is carved into the cliff on your left.

Red Dead Redemption 2 rock carving 8

Location: Just above the rope bridge over the Dakota River from Cumberland Forest, on a ledge under the cliff edge

In relation :  Resident Evil 4 Remake: here's how to end the village war in seconds

Follow the eastbound path above the C of Cumberland Forest until you reach a broken rope bridge. Return to yourself, back to the mountain, but up to the trees on the cliff above. Go to the edge and you’ll see another ledge below. Go down from there and then walk just over the rope bridges to the edge where you’ll find the rock carving on the cliff face to your left (one solid, one not so).

Red Dead Redemption 2 rock carving 9

Location: On a rock ledge north of the wooden bridge over Whinyard Straight, north of Window rock in Ambarino

On the left side of Whinyard Plain, where the wooden bridge crosses, a few meters above the bridge is the ninth rock carving carved in stone.

Red Dead Redemption 2 rock carving 10

Location: Grizzlies West at the top of Mount Hagen in Ambarino

Follow the map to Mount Hagen until you are about to reach its natural conclusion. The rock carving is pretty obvious from the road on the rock face on the right.

So you can find all 10 Red Dead Redemption 2 rock carvings here. All you have to do is send your findings to Francis Sinclair. One note though, if you deliver all 10 coordinates at once, you’ll need to get your mail from the post office once to receive the $10 prize and the Kentucky Bourbon and Rock you’ll get for delivering a set of coordinates. The statue you got five. Then you’ll have to come back a little later to get Francis Sinclair’s Letter of Invitation, before finally making your way to Sinclair’s cabin near Strawberry to discover the true meaning of the rock carvings.
