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


Easily top roped after doing Doin' the Good Drive, this climb follows the same finger crack and then climbs the small roof to a short slab to an anchor.


Follow the same finger crack as Doin' the Good Drive to a ledge and move to the right of the triangle roof. Same anchor as Doin' the Good Drive and A Simple Expediency

More a variation than an independent climb. Same high quality and stout moves down low as Doin' the Good Drive, then some thoughtful face climbing up high.
