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

Description 

Climb to the left side of the roof, then up and right on the varnished face. Adequate protection is available. The easiest descent is to step left to the rap station on top of Coronary Bypass. Alternatively climb Pincushion for two more good pitches.

Location 

Begin to the right of the mini-buttress below the hanging block.

Protection

Excellent pitch. If you follow the cracks on the left side of the lower slab, which seems like the natural line, the difficulty seems more like 5.5-5.6.

I chose to stay in the center at the bottom adequate protection, Fun with an easy improbable traverse above overhang.
