Jake on the starting crux of Cal West
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
This route combines some slab climbing (not my forte) with some face climbing. It is a long warm-up. Be sure to tie a knot in the belay end of your rope if using a 50m cord, especially if belaying from down the ramp!
When you reach the alcove of California Crag, head west about 100' on a white slab. It's the red arete about 30' right of a water streak.
8 bolts to anchors (This is an update to the Swain book which says 6 bolts... apparently 2 more were added).

kind of a 1 move wonder at the start on not great rock, then a soft rock thin section and a bit of 5.8 climbing. OK if you just need a final route in the sun.
