The lower easy section. Never did stick the crux,...

RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


Super easy climbing to an extremely difficult crux. A one move wonder and the move isn't very good.


1st route to the left of the crack.


4-5 bolts to sport anchor

Crux of this route felt harder than any of the moves on SOS. Crux felt like a fingery V6 boulder problem. This one won't be getting the downgrade anytime soon.

5.10 to a V7 2 finger crimp move, to 5.10 climbing. I fell all over this route at this move. I just can't do it.
