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

Description 

This route follows the prominent corner and crack system on the right (western) edge of the Blood Wall. Four pitches up the crack lead to easier, broken rock near the summit. The crux is a steep section on the second pitch.

Location 

Scramble up the Blood Wall approach until you can move right (west) to the base of the route.

Protection 

Std rack, small cams, wires
