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


At the far left end of the Brass Wall, just before the huge shrubby gully, a vertical line of huecos climbs up the wall a fem meters right of the end. Start climbing down to the right of a bulge at he base of the hueco line, then climb up and left to the huecos, then to the top of the wall, perhaps 45 feet.

Walk off to the left and down.


A few large cams to put in pockets on this face.

The line described above bears no relation to the published descriptions of this climb in the Handren and Brock guides. For a route that resembles those descriptions:

Start under the tree ledge, just left of the big block that holds Sniveler and Heavy Spider Karma. Start up the left-facing corner on the right (easier), or stay left and do a couple of funky mantles with poor gear to the big ledge below the varnish. At the left end of this ledge, climb up the right-facing corner (more like 5.6 than 5.4), and continue up a crack system to the ledge; rap off the oak tree. Standard rack, maybe some Tricams for pockets in the varnish, long runners to prevent rope drag.
